    Question What is the Term?

    1) We say Female toilet although it is used by females not by a single female, because female here works as an adjective.

    What is the term of this? I'd like to read more about it?


    2) What do we do in case the second word has to plural to convey its real meaning. ie: Bowels problems, do we say bowel problems or bowels problems?


    3) Sometimes it seems that I can pluraize and unpluraize the noun. Such as:
    Dream Island
    and
    Dreams Island.

    Is there any difference between the two? :S

    Thanks :)

    You never make the adjective plural.
