Removed the following examples, due to being "The+Adjective+MeaningfulNoun" rather than "The+MeaningfulNoun+PoliticalOrSymbolicNoun":
Also edited the Laconic defition. Made it more clear, and removed another "The+Adjective+Noun" misuse.
The Lost World (Michael Crichton)
The Lost Colony (Eoin Colfer)
The Time Paradox
As I understand this trope, the first word sounds like a name of something, the second is a noun which sounds symbolic, political. Not to be confused with just having two words in the title. (Which would be a bit, a chair is not a trope) "Lost" and "Time" don't really sound like names or codes. Lost is an adjective
I left The Naked God because it was talking about a trilogy and it at least hints that naked isn't actually meant in the normal sense of the word
Incidentally this explains why I always had a nagging feeling that those two Artemis Fowl books had weaker names
I think a proper example of this should have the central word be (a) esoteric, (b) a noun or proper noun and (c) stressed; "the DAHDAH duhduh". So "The Undiscovered Colony" wouldn't work even though it matches (a), because it fails (b) and (c), but "The Lazarus Colony" would.

How well does it match the trope?
