[R] Symbolic substitution of expressions into expressions

In the following

titletxt <- substitute(paste(tx, tilde(y) == sqrt(y)),
  list(tx="Replace y by "))

I'd like to be able to replace e.g. sqrt(y) by a symbol or
symbolic expression that has the effect of inserting sqrt(y)
into the place that it occupies.  This would allow me to put an
arbitrary expression into that position.  [One can use text() or
mtext() etc. to place titletxt on a graph.]

Any clues would be most welcome.
John Maindonald.
