What is the difference between

a three-week holiday

a three-weeks' holiday

I am so tired so I want to take a three-week / a three-weeks holiday.

Which one is more suitable to use or which is the correct one?


I suppose, here the three-week is an adjective for the holiday.

So you would say a three-week holiday,why I'm that sure is for when I came across a noun phrase which six-people was the adjective for a six-people **bus**, and I figure it out it was an adjective for the noun comes afterwards.

Nouns in compound adjectives don't take a plural form: a three-year old child, a five-minute walk or a five minutes' walk.
