    Default Word Order

    Are these correct? What do they mean?
    1. I need a DVD software with recording captions feature.
    2. I need a DVD software with captions recording feature.

    3. I need a DVD software with caption recording feature. (This means one caption only right?)

    Hi Jack,

    I'd go with #3, but without the the first "a," but with an "a" before caption:

    "I need DVD software with a caption recording feature."

    The singular is used here because it's specifying what kind of recording feature you want. It is similar to saying

    "My cake-making skills are very good"
    "The police officer was a good thief catcher"
