    designate

    Hi,

    Which of the following is the correct one:
    vice president-designate or
    vice-president-designate ?
    Can I use designate as a noun? Like:
    All of designates are expected to....
    is it a correct use?

    thank you

    Re: designate

    Vice-president designate is acceptable. To use designate as a noun would be incorrect. You could change that to designatee, but while following the "rules" just isn't comfortable. I would find a different way to state it.
