Bin Laden's death
Bin Laden death
What about ''The bin laden death''?
I read it on Yahoo.
There are two unknowns about Obama's polling in wake of the bin Laden death. First, it's unclear if this is the full measure of Obama's "bounce" in the aftermath of the historic news. Perhaps the bigger question, however, is whether Obama can sustain his higher numbers. Even if it's only a slight bump in certain surveys, the numbers are far less dismal than they were earlier this year. Ahead of what looks to be a tough re-election campaign, Obama surely would take any break he can get.
They're using "bin Laden" as a modifier for "death". The author is speaking of it as an event. But it is strange. I wouldn't use it like this. And definitely not for "ordinary folk"
"The Bob death was unexpected" is grammatically wrong and sounds very weird.
In journalism, we often see both, though I don't like the one without the genitive much.
And there's the death of + name
