Yes, autocorrect sucks sometimes ;-)

Indeed. Sorry for not being clear. What I meant is talking about 
compound nouns, and the difference between CN and 
noun-noun-constructions. Grammatically, there is not much difference, 
but there is. When "speaking" a language, you don't hear that difference 
anyway, but sometimes people insist on the difference, and sometimes 
Okrand even confirms the difference, althoigh he says it's not so 

May question came from a recent discussion on Facebook. Someone quoted 
form DeCandido's book which used a word *qo'Sor* which had been 
corrected by Okrand to {qo'_Sor}, i.e. with a space.

So I'd like to find existing examples which "may" give a litle light 
into this, but without making any rules of it.
