    Not bad, wilma.

    "Court" can also be a noun, and it has many meanings:

    A place where justice is administered.
    An area surrounded by buildings and open to the sky.
    A certain kind of large house, or a palace.
    A king or queen, and all those who help them rule a country.
    A playing area for certain sports (e.g. tennis).

    "Courtyard" only has one meaning: it's an area surrounded on all four sides, often by buildings or at least walls, and open to the sky.
