    Resurgence

    In "resugence of patriotism", is "resurgence" a "Noun" or an "Adjective"? My colleague says it is a Noun, but "resurgence" describes a 'quality' of the 'patriotism', hence I believe it should be a Adjective.

    Please clarify.

    "Resurgence" does not describe a quality of the patriotism. The patriotism could be of any quality at all; the only constraining quality that is has in this case is that it is resurgent - and we only know this because it is resurging. That doesn't make "resurging" an adjective.
    Why do you think "resurgence" describes the quality of the patriotism?

    In "the birth of the baby", does "birth" describe a quality of the baby? Is "birth" an adjective. [Hint: No, it isn't]
