Two questions
 
Could you telm me the correct form?: irregular verb quiz or irregular verbs quiz?

My second question is: is it correct to say happiness whereabouts? Or happiness s whereabouts? Or does it sound strange altogether? Is there a better way to wonder about where one can find happiness?

Thanks!

Irregular verb quiz sounds the best to me, but the plural wouldn t be incorrect.

It would have to be happiness s whereabouts...but that s a bit of a mouthful (hard to say) & I would probably say it another way.
It depends on the context.

The whereabouts of happiness.
People seek happiness in many places.
Where can happiness be found?
Finding happiness.
Seeking happiness.

Generally when a noun is used as an adjective it loses the s . So we get three-year-old girl not three-years-old girl. So I would go for irregular verb quiz based on that theory.
