@centrox,
Just out of curiosity, how do you capture the above screenshot? Do you have a special program? I have Google Chrome installed on my computer.

You get an account with an image hosting site, such as imgur, imgbox, etc, then upload the image to your account, then, in a reply place the image link between img tags, like this:

Code:[img]https://images2.imgbox.com/0a/ff/FtHqrFVa_o.jpg[/img]

You can either type the img tags directly or click the Img button above the reply box.

@centrox,

imgur, for one, can be used without creating an account...

@centrox,
doesn't work.

Here is the link I get:

https://www.google.it/search?q=%22Three+word+compound+noun%22&newwindow=1&ei=bh08WqK9MoLzUIHkoogO&start=10&sa=N&biw=1536&bih=779

but I can't find the list you gave.

It is a composite of items from a number of sites and forums found in that Google search. You must try harder.

I don't think so because I have https://www.google.it whilst I presume you have https://www.google.uk


switch to google.ca or google.com or google.uk when doing your English-language searches

it makes a big difference

I sometimes use google.de when I'm looking for specific recipes.

@ehBeth,
Here in Italy, it's not possible to switch to google.com.

It should be possible. Bottom right of Google page.

@Region Philbis,
You are right, Region. Your sister and I live in the same region that is Tuscany, and when we type google.com we automatically get redirected to google.it

Just out of curiosity, is she happy to live there?

@paok1970,
Region:

I have to take it back. Centrox, as usual, is right. If you go to the Google homepage, click on Settings (bottom right), then "Search Settings." At that point, you have to choose the country you want to be redirected, for instance UK or US, and save your changes. Remember that you have to be logged in to Google before doing this.

@paok1970,
I forgot. After following the above instructions, you have to google "google.co.uk," for instance.

I hope I have made myself clear.

@centrox,
Even though I switch to google.co.uk and I type Three word compound noun (with no quote marks), the results don't show the list you suggest.

Please, I need the URL to find that list!
