Is there a verb for phalanx? I searched online dictionaries, but I didn't find it.
Can I use Phalanx as a title of my story?
I am just wondering whether I should use a verb, or a noun for titles.

1 dictionary.reference.com records phalanx as both noun and verb:
Wordnik lists several examples of verb use (phalanxed), including:
Bulletin of the Department of Labor, Volume 9, Issues 54-55 records usage of both noun and verb forms:
"It is old as the Normans, I should think, that square tower, so massy and low, firm as the rock, so phalanxed and solid in its imperturbable immovability." (Charles Dickens - 1860) [emphasis mine]
2 Why would one concern with the POS of a title? Shouldn't any do? OP's issue with using a verb or noun form is not clear.
