A compound noun

Nouns are composed of a substance called Anything (see adjectives for retrieval of Anything). They are heavier than they look, and when touched, leave a smudge not unlike ground ginger on your hands. They are originally subterranean creatures, dug up by adjectives. To tell the difference between a noun and a compound noun (direct blood relation) one must simply count the feet, nouns have two and compound nouns have four. Shown here is a compound noun, he volunteered and he is enjoying the attention.


1. Any member of a class of words that are formally distinguished in many languages, as in English, typically by the plural and possessive endings and that can function as the main or only elements of subjects or objects.  Nouns are often thought of as referring to persons, places, things, states, or qualities.
