I apologize in advance if my question is not put in a way that is grammatical enough.
I have to example phrases:
"1) The Dawning of a New Age" "2) Transfer of Power in the Eighteenth Century"
If I were to arrange each heading in two lines: Where would it makes most sense to split the phrase and why?
I came to the following tentative solution:
"1A) The Dawning / of a New Age" as opposed to "1B) The Dawning of / a New Age"
I opt for 1B because the preposition "of" rather belongs to the first noun phrase than to the second.
"2A) Transfer of Power /in the Eighteenth Century" as opposed to "2B) Transfer of Power in / the Eighteenth Century"
I opt for 2A because the preposition "in" rather belongs the second noun phrase.
Is my reasoning reasonable in grammatical/syntactic terms?
Or would it be more suitable just for reasons of aesthetics (regardless of grammar) to split the phrases consistently before/after the preposition in order to put the heading into two lines for my paper?
