Exercise: 1 / 8

Recognising noun compounds
Exercise 1

Instructions: In this first exercise, you are asked to find and click on noun compounds in short texts. In English, noun compounds are typically written in the 'open form' as two separate words, while many of the same terms are often written in Finnish either as a single 'closed' word (polttoainesäiliö = gas tank) or as a hyphenated form of two words (e.g., html-koodi = html code). In this exercise, you are asked to identify and click on the noun compounds, both 'closed' and 'open' forms.

Estimated time: 20 minutes.
