<<Well, I'm not a native speaker but I think "nightlife" *is* a "single
word". I found it at least in all dictionaries and thesauruses I looked
I did not mean to suggest or imply that "nightlife" does not exist as a
single word. I was simply pointing out that it is derived of two separate
and distinct words which have, over time, been melded together onto one.
Regardless of its "singleness," it's basically a "two-word word." The same
goes for "popart," except that the capitol A (PopArt), if it really stays
this way, would be a clear indication that two words are intended, even
though they are written as one. So my basic point is that with such titles
as Nightlife and PopArt, the PSB are creatively "suggesting" two words.
And didn't they just want to express that the PSB music is ART with a
capital "A"....??? ;)
