    Default Re: Question/Questions...

    In most cases, we use the singular form of the noun when it's used as a modifier, so use question words.

    (Shoe store, hamburger stand, etc. One notable exception is sports. Sports car, sports stadium.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
