Hi Tad,

Welcome to the Forum.

This is a bit long. I've only time to correct the first paragraph. I suggest that you make corrections and next time post it in our Writing Forum. Just go back to Home, and you'll find it easily.

As a general comment, I suggest that the importance of your report is what you learned from the experience. Focus on yourself. Don't refer to yourself as 'the author 'or 'the student', just say ' I '. The whole second paragraph says nothing at all about you. It simply describes the system. I suggest that the reader will care about you, not the system. Say 'I did this, I did that'. 'Here is my opinion about the system'. Write more 'What I learned is . . .'

Hi Clive,

In your last sentence of your reply, you have this phrase "the quotations creation process." Normally one would use the nouns "quotations" and "creation" independently and not use them as adjectives, I think. What are the binding rules regarding the usage of nouns as adjectives? What and how many are permissable?

Hi,

I was just trying to correct Tad's English without changing too much of the way he originally wrote it. If I were writing it myself, I might say something like "the process for creating quotations."

I wouldn't say there are binding rules. However, generally speaking, I'd say one noun as an adjective is fine, more than that can become a bad habit. People doing 'business writing' often like to do this kind of thing, and the result is that their meaning is often imprecise and obscure.

Best wishes, Clive
Thank you, Clive.

What are the rules regarding the use of single nouns to modify other nouns? Would you say if those modifying nouns are being used adjectives in English-speaking countries and are more or less can be found in print form, then we are allowed used them as adjectives?
Hi,

What are the rules regarding the use of single nouns to modify other nouns?

A noun used in this way is usually singular, eg a car salesman, three car salesmen.

I looked in Swan's Practical English Usage. He has a long section on 'nouns in groups' that you would find interesting. It covers the types of meaning conveyed and the common situations in which we group nouns. Do you have access to a copy of Swan? If not, I can try to summarize, but it's better if you can read the whole thing. It's more oriented to describing the situations where we do this, rather than defining them in terms of rules.

Would you say if those modifying nouns are being used adjectives in English-speaking countries and are more or less can be found in print form, then we are allowed used them as adjectives? Yes.

Best wishes, Clive
