Compound Nouns

Compound nouns are nouns that are formed by the combination of two or more nouns or nouns with a preposition, adjective or adverb.

For example: armchair, bookcase, brother-in-law, toothpaste, bedroom

There are a couple of rules to follow when making compound nouns plural.

Rules for forming plurals from compound nouns:

A.      Some plural compounds can be formed by adding “-s” to the main element (word) in the compound noun. For example:
son-in-law → sons-in-law.

B.      Some plural compounds can be formed by adding “-s” to the last element. For example:
grown-up → grown-ups.
