| | part of speech of compound nouns
Would you please tell me to what part of speech do these words belong ?
work permit ; video game ; bike trailer...
Should they be listed under the category of:
a) compound nouns = 1 part of speech (does it exist ?)
b) noun (video; work; bike)
+ noun (game; permit; trailer) =
2 similar parts of speech
c) descriptive adjectives OR nouns functioning as adjectives ? (video; work; bike...)
+ nouns (permit; game; trailer) =
2 different parts of speech ?
I wish you all a merry Christmas.
