comment Do we use the word “disjoint” as a noun?
Perhaps I didn't say clear. My ultimate goal is to find a noun to express the meaning of two shapes not intersecting. Do you think disjointedness is proper or any other suggestion ?

Actually I use it in something related to maths. I use it to mean two shapes don't intersect.

comment Do we use the word “disjoint” as a noun?
I do want to mean that 2 things have nothing in common. Actually I'm using it to mean that two geometric shapes don't intersect, so I wonder if either disjointed or disjointedness would be improper in my case since I don't want to mean some order is disturbed

Thank you. I didn't realize it can be converted first to disjointed, but is there any difference between disjoint and disjointed? I think disjoint can be used as an adjective itself
