Hi, everyone. Im a new guy so I probably dont really know about the rules here. Hope you wont mind. :roll:

I saw a sentence in 'The curious incident of the dog in the night-time' which says,

"You seek out the traditional, the natural and the cosmopolitan."

And Im wondering if an adjective can be followed by the word "the" and then they group as a noun. Like 'the poor' or 'the rich'.

If there is any grammatical problems throughout my words, please point out. Im always willing to learn. Thank you. :-D

Yes, you can turn adjectives into nouns like that.
