    grammatical head

    (grammar) of a word in a phrase; the word playing the same
    grammatical role in the sentence that the phrase itself
    plays; "the head noun in the phrase `fresh fish' is
    `fish,' which is the direct object in the sentence `I
    bought fresh fish'"
    head - definition from dictionary.die.net
