Dissecting: Mein Lieblingsgetränk

Hi,

Mein Lieblingsgetränk = my favorite drink

Can I drop the "getränk" and add "fahrzeug" to make....

Mein Lieblingsfahrzeug?

Thanks!

Yes, this is how compound nouns are formed. The noun at the end defines the grammatical properties:

Meine Lieblingsmusik

... is feminine because "Musik" is feminine.

Seems the answer is yes, as German loves to create words this way. Check also this (By the way, a lovely song and singer, I find lyrics a excellent way of building vocabulary and improving pronunciation, as I try to learn one song a week). Hope you enjoy as much as I do :)
