Escape the mundane?

Hi again, I have come across the following ad:

Escape the mundane at one of our uniquely romantic B&Bs!

Now, according to my dictionary, the word mundane is an adjective. Is mundane used as a noun in the above phrase or is it an adjective and the noun is omitted? Thank you.

Hi Nicole,

You’re quite right that mundane is an adjective in its original use but it’s perfectly acceptable to convert an adjective into a noun by putting the article in front of it. Mostly this is done with a plural meaning as in: the rich/the poor/the unemployed and so on. At the same time it can be used as in your sentence with a singular intention. It’s often used in advertising as in: Experience the extraordinary and fly with **** airline (Maybe I should say Swissair)

Just some thoughts.
