Several students have asked me this question:
Is it acceptable to write words like "bookshop" or "seafood" as two words (book shop, sea food)?
To answer this question, you need to look at the question instructions.
- If the instruction says you can use two words or three words, "book shop" and "sea food" would be accepted.
- However, if the instruction tells you to use only one word, you must write "bookshop" or "seafood". If you write two words, it's wrong!
Note: When doing practice tests, always look up words that you are unsure about in a dictionary.
