I really need your help with this. I get extremely frustrated when I don’t know how to know the right use of these cases. Please extend your help by providing me any websites or tips to fully understand and explore this. Consider these sentences.
1- The sentence wording is wrong here.
A. Can you say “ the wording sentence” or “ the word sentences”?
B. If you do change the order of these two words, how would the meaning be different? How are you able to know which one goes first?
2- Let me take this car for a test drive.
A. Can you say “ a testing drive” Or “ a drive test” Why not?
B. Please highlight the difference.
3 - Where are the indicator lights?
A. Can you say “the light indicators” ?
B. Again, what is the difference and how can you know which one goes first?
C. What is the correct format or the grammar to these collocations? MOST IMPORTANTLY, How can I know the difference and be able to form these collocations correctly??
Please help me as much as you can with sources/websites/ tips/ anything that might help me know how to know the difference and use the right form.
