Can "acorn" really be used as an adjective? Can somebody check this or comment please? — Hippietrail 01:36, 11 Apr 2004 (UTC)

No, from the definition it's clear the person who added that was thinking of "acorn squash", which is a type of squash similar in shape to an acorn. It's another case of a noun being used in the syntactic place of an adjective. I've removed it. Ortonmc 03:12, 12 Apr 2004 (UTC)
