Some "compound nouns" are hyphenated nouns. There are three forms of compound words:

- The closed form, in which the words are melded together, such as firefly, secondhand, softball, childlike, crosstown, redhead, keyboard, makeup, notebook

- The open form, such as post office, real estate, middle class, full moon, half sister, attorney general.

- The hyphenated form, such as daughter-in-law, master-at-arms, over-the-counter, six-pack, six-year-old, mass-produced
