    stop over

    Dear teachers...

    Could 'stop over' be a noun?

    There are 2 stops-over from London to Tokyo.
    I am stuck on a stop-over.
    The plain's(or flight's) stop over was not planned.

    Thanks

    Re: stop over

    Yes, I just checked, there's no hyphen. It does look strange.

    Check the second rule out.

    Thanks for the link.

    Incidentally, I think it's helpful not to quote a pretty-looking link-name uncritically, as if what it says is bound to be right. I did a whois search on grammarbook.com, and got this:
    Domain Name: GRAMMARBOOK.COM
    Registrar: GODADDY.COM, INC.
    Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com
    Referral URL: Browser Update Page
    Name Server: NS1.MYWEBLINX.NET
    Name Server: NS2.MYWEBLINX.NET
    Status: clientDeleteProhibited
    Status: clientRenewProhibited

    Updated Date: 12-sep-2008

    I haven't looked at the site yet, but when I do I'll bear in mind that it's registered to goddady.com.

    PS Aha - it looks as if GoDaddy is something to do with education in the USA; but it's 'Inc.' which suggests to me that money is involved somewhere (not that that's a Bad Thing).

    Re: stop over

    The PS to my last post was wrong. GoDaddy is nothing to do with education; it's a business that sells domain names.
