You're absolutely right -- in English just about any noun can be used
as an adjective, and www.m-w.com does actually have the compound noun
"sound wave", but I had _just_ been using the thesaurus, and found it
quite humorous that I couldn't find either "synonymous" or "synonym"
therein, so I was looking for an excuse to make yet another lame joke,
but that obviously wasn't a "sound decision" :)
