Compound names & noun phrases

Post by paokricc » Sun Feb 03, 2019 5:43 pm

What is the difference between "compound nouns" and "noun phrases"?

Would you please give me some examples of how to use them correctly/properly?

Thank you.

compound noun: bus stop, full moon, breakfast, sunrise, check-out, mother-in-law, underworld, truckful

a noun phrase can be a single noun or a group of words built around a single noun: animals, the last sandwich, all passengers with tickets
