Question about compound proper nouns..


Recommended Posts

A person's name, city, state, etc. that is normally capitalized is a Proper Noun (proper, uses good manners so we recognize it with a capital letter)

Compound words, often nouns, are those made of two common words (nouns) put together, like horsehair, nearby, elsewhere, snowsuit. A compound word can be either common or proper (Jamestown, Townsend, Allentown, Underwood).
