The country has an extensive network of motorways V motorways system


The country has an extensive network of motorways.

Would it be fine to say “The country has an extensive motorways system”?

Many thanks. Bye

Hmm… I suppose the answer is yes.

I suppose it’s okay, though personally I would say ‘motorway system’.

Hi dear Bev, thanks a lot! :wink:

Hi Francis.

Your sentence has an example of the noun becoming an adjective and in that case dropping the ‘s’. The sort of example I means is: ‘A book of prayers’ becomes ‘a prayer book’. Your

is really a system of motorways and this becomes a motorway system.

Hi Alan,

Thanks for your explanation. Now it’s definitively clear why the correct form is “motorway system”.

Have a good day.
