Hi,


It might heat water that could be considered "hot", but calling it a "hot water heater" suggests it only heats "hot" water.

When you put a pan with water on the stove because you don't want to light the unit that produces hot water or you use a pan to heat water because you don't need 6 or more gallons of "hot water", is the pan on the stove a water heater? Of course it is.. I don't think it's so bad when you talk about a heater that has a defined purpose to make "hot water" a "hot water" heater; otherwise if you don't make a distinction, anything that heats water is a water heater. Put a bowl in the focus point of a sun-oven, is that a water heater? Yes. When I say my "hot water" heater. I know that I am speaking of the device that has a defined purpose of heating water so that becomes my "hot water" heater, otherwise everything that holds water and will sit on top of a flame or in the sunlight or any water that passes over an engine block or a hot grid of black material in a insulated glass frame is a "water heater". In fact is the engine in your car a "water heater" that pumps "hot water" through a small radiator with air that blows through it to heat the cabin? Of course it is. But it's certainly not considered a "hot water" heater. Nor is the sun oven and glass jar a "hot water" heater or the solar collector what has water passing through it a "hot water" heater. Saying "hot water" in front of heater narrows down the subject to exactly one device. A "water heater" in turn as we have just proven can be just about anything that gets warm and contains water.

Is this an example of a noun becoming an adjective?

Fish Sandwich

Fish=adjective, Sandwich = Noun

Tuna Fish Sandwich

Tuna=adjective specifier
Fish=adjective
Sandwich =Noun

Or is it

Tuna = adjective
Fish-sandwich =noun

You've got some place to be in a hurry?

Besides this is more fun than other things I see on the net.

I used to correct my co-workers before I retired. Some used say, "Let's plan on having a pre-planning meeting."

I used to respond by asking if the purpose of the pre-planning meeting was to "Plan to plan."

Come on folks, it's simply a planning meeting.

Well I typically don't call it a gas pedal but smelly gas does come out when I step on it.

There is no such device in your RV as a Hot water heater.

You have a water heater.
So Red Baron, would this make you the director of the “Department of Redundancy Dept.”?
