You can set the forword string as labeltext and ignore the title (but 
use a empty argument when set userdata like the author).

   [forword] [chapter]

    chapter=Chapter ]







\placelist [chapter,forword]

\startforword [] [author={A. u. thor}] \stopforword



\startchapter [title=Chapter 1] [author={A. u. thor}] \stopchapter
