    The thought of working nights

    Hi,

    Is this sentence correct?


    The thought of working nights fills me with abject horror.


    Can anyone help me with the sentence structure of the bold part?


    "Nights" here is a noun but it needs an adverb here, right?

    Re: The thought of working nights

    The sentence is correct as is.

    '...working nights' just means 'working on the night shift'.
