    Default Compound nouns

    HI everybody,
    on my English course I have a homework connected with compound nouns. I have two groups of words (nouns):
    A: home, public, orking, dress, health, college, Tv, gap, family
    B: club, programme, year, cooking, transport, pet, hours, code, friends

    I should combine the words A with B to make compund nouns. More than one combination may be possible.

    I found this:
    public transport
    working hours
    health programme
    health club
    TV programme
    family friends

    Please correct, if I am wrong. Maybe somebody have more ideas?
    Thank you for your help.

    Ewa

    First-rate job. ("working" is a gerund, not a noun.)
