      Um compound adjective (or hyphened adjective) é um adjective formado by two ou mais words. Por ser um adjective, ele nunca leva o ‘S’, mesmo sendo plural:

Three-day holiday = holiday de three days

(Not: Three-days holiday)

Ten-year-old children = children de ten years

(Not: Ten-years-old children)

Two-bedroom house = house com two bedrooms

(Not: Two-bedrooms house)

Five-minute showers = showers de five minutes

(Not: Five-minutes showers)

       Note que o uso do hyphen deixa claro para o leitor que as two words são part do mesmo adjective.
