Talk:pubescent

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

Use as noun?[edit]

Is anyone familiar with this being used as a noun? Sort of similar to how adolescent or preteen can be used both as an adjective for the characteristics, as well as a noun referring to someone who possesses them? Same question for similar terms currently defined as adjectives which might have noun usage: prepubescent, peripubescent, postpubescent. DB 14:18, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
