I am a new NLP engineer and totally a beginner in English linguistics. I want to know if two nouns can appear together in a sentence without a punctuation or a conjunction between both of them? Also, the two nouns should reflect two different entities, not one.
The name of the president is Donald Trump.
Part of Speech tagger in NLP tags Donald and Trump as NNP (proper noun) respectively. But in the real world, Donald Trump is one entity.
Yes, absolutely; consider e.g. “I fed the guests dinner”. Or heck, consider just “orange juice”.
This can be taken to extremes: “I fed the quantum physics professor banana chocolate chip muffins.”
