Dear Grammar Exchange,
This is my first post as a member. Thank you for the opportunity of posting on this forum.
I believe that transparency is key here.
I am in the process of developing a name for a fictional ship. The name I have settled upon is Ardent Discovery. However, the development of this name has had me thinking about the relationship between the two words (the adjective modifying the noun) and I’ve come to a point where I can't see the wood for the trees, so to speak.
Please could someone assist me here? I have two key questions in this regard:
1) Can you use any adjective to modify any noun?
2) Is there a grammatical precedent for using these two words together - in essence, could the act/process of ’discovery’ be described as ’ardent’?
Many thanks in advance.
Best wishes to you all!
