Could the word "connect" be used as a noun ? For example, " The spoken language ringtone on his cellular telephone was more an emotional connect than a functional feature."
M-W has 'disconnect' as a noun, and I don't doubt that 'connect' will be more commonly used as a noun in some regional areas.
Main Entry: 2disconnect
: a lack of or a break in connection, consistency, or agreement <a huge disconnect…between the nation's capital and the rest of the country — R. J. Samuelson>
