    'name' => t('Nodes'),
    'description' => t('Tokens related to node objects.'),
  $data['tokens']['node']['title'] = array(
    'name' => t('Title'),
    'description' => t('The title of the current node.'),
  $data['tokens']['node']['author'] = array(
    'name' => t('Author'),
    'description' => t('The author of the current node.'),
    'type' => 'user',

Return value
