Homework Help: grammar

Posted by Lisa on Tuesday, December 11, 2007 at 9:05pm.

In the following sentences, what are the common and nouns?
First sentence:
Often on October outings, Otto offers oranges to officers.
In this sentence I am confused by October. It seems like it should be a proper noun, but in a way it seems like it is functioning as an adjective to say what kind of outing it is.
Second sentence:
Lucy lost lots of laughs lingering in the lunchroom line.
The confusing part to me is the lunchroom line. Again, it seems like lunchroom and line would both be common nouns, and yet the word lunchroom seems to function as an adjective for line.
