On a web form should field labels be nouns or verbs? This issue arose from two fields on an account request form that currently read:
- Temporary Password
- Re-Enter Temporary Password
There is debate as to whether a verb should ever sneak in. From general observation I believe nouns are more frequently used - especially for sign-up forms - but I do know that breaking a pattern can draw attention to the item.
So, nouns or verbs (or both)? Links to studies would be greatly appreciated.
