Hey DaveP,

Are you talking about the actor

Gustaf Gründgens?

Cheers,

Ah,

I assumed 'Gründgens' was a noun – not a person. Doh!

Thanks.

Hi Dave,

You weren't wrong in the first place - a name is what is termed a "proper noun" - so it is a real and proper noun after all :D

http://www.englishclub.com/grammar/nouns-proper.htm

Wait a minute, though: it's being used as an adjective here .... an adjective derived from a proper noun is a proper adjective (now that's got me good and proper :roll: )

Thanks for the additional explanation Ponshobbit, but I think I just expressed my reply badly. I meant that I hadn’t realised Gründgens was a person’s name (and therefore a proper noun), and assumed it was a ‘normal’ noun, like in the English ‘clown-face’ and ‘dog-breath’.

Hi Dave,

That's ok, I wasn't trying to be a know-all: As well as wanting to explain - I also felt a pun coming on :mrgreen: and saw an opportunity to get it out :D

Maybe I'll start a new entry on the pun culture - I grew up with this and just have to get back to the roots sometimes ...

*Gründgensgesicht*

Gerade frage ich mich, was für ein Gesicht ein Gründgens-Gesicht ist:

Hier gibt es einige Gesichter zum Auswahl: :shock:
