I've merged the threads. There was no point in having two. I've also changed the title to reflect its content.
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.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Today I interviewed one of those users, one of my daughters, the holder of an M.A. in English. My question was whether she thought fun was primarily a noun or an adjective. She said that although she would understand a sentence in which fun was used as a noun, she would never use it herself except as an adjective. And she thought that went for her friends as well.

I wrote my post rather hastily and the message didn't come through well as a result. Sorry for that!
I too had thought about "Have fun!" at some point after my last contribution.
