Should I write the word "heartbeat" as one word or separately - heart beat?

👋🏻 Hi Oliver, Heartbeat is a closed compound, which means there is no space between the two existing words. I hope this helps. 😀
One word, it is a closed compound 😉
It depends on context. "Heartbeat" is a noun and a single word, but if you separate them "heart" is the noun, and "beat" is a verb. As one word, you could say "Her heartbeat is very fast"; and as two, you would say "Her heart beat very quickly". These two example sentences mean the same thing but the structure is a bit different
Hello, It should be written as one word because its a compound word which means two separate words are combined to make one Heart and Beat ,when they get together it becomes heartbeat.
As a noun you should write it as one word.
Heartbeat is a compound word written as one word; which means the beating of one's heart.
Things can change in a heartbeat. "Heartbeat" is simply a noun.
Hi HEART BEAT is a phrase combining a noun and a verb. Therefore must be treated as a noun and a verb. Heart (noun) Beat (verb) Heart beats – the heart’s action Hearts beat – the hearts’ actions Your heart beats in your chest. Her heart beat violently when she received the letter. HEARTBEAT is simply a noun - one complete pulsation of the heart Things can change in a heartbeat. He's receiving medication for an irregular heartbeat. Best Regards
Hi 👋 OliverParks Heart is a noun and beat is a verb. So these two words together make one compound word and that is heartbeat. And it's written as one word HEARTBEAT. Example: when you run fast, you have high rate of heartbeats.
As heart is a noun and beat is verb and heartbeat is a compound word when combined it can be used in both ways, as heart beat or heartbeat.For Example His heart beats fast when he saw a lion infront of him. His haertbeat is not normal.
“Heartbeat” is a compound word once it is written together. It’s a noun meaning the pulsation of the heart. Ex: He had a rapid heartbeat. One they are written separately “heart beat”, heart is a noun and beat is verb. Ex: Her heart beats rapidly.
