Thank you for your soon response (soon response = quick answer)

I didn't find such way of using the word 'soon' but I think that I heard such using somewhere.


Can I use the word 'soon' in this context (soon response = quick answer)?

Thanks in advance

    No, soon is an adverb not an adjective. Thank you for replying so soon, or so quickly. "Thank you in advance for a prompt reply." Apr 25 '17 at 22:07

"Soon" is an adverb, not an adjective, so it is used to modify verbs, not nouns. It would be fine to use with the verb to respond:

Thank you for responding so soon!

Adjectives like "soon": quick, prompt, timely, expeditious, speedy, plus many others.
