Compound Adjectives are hyphenated adjectives that contain two or more words joined by hyphens. The adjective is placed before the noun and modifies it.
Examples: 4-storey house, five-week holiday, 9-hour day, well-known writer, densely-populated area
Do not combine an adverb and an adjective as this does not create a compound adjective because no hyphen is required in this case, as the adverb modifies the adjective.
Example: terribly hot food
To join Compound Adjectives with Quotation Marks is also possible but rarely done.
Example:"go away" look,"Championship" team.
