    Not all adjectives can replace nouns. When we use substantive adjectives the noun it replaces is understood without being explicitly stated.

    Quite often they refer to people:-

    For example: the rich / the poor = rich people / poor people

    But not always:-

    For example: my local = my local pub

    Are there any hard and fast rules? No. For ESL learners it's a bit like idioms, best to learn them and get a feel for what's right. For linguists? Well, I guess someone, somewhere is trying to figure out a rule, good luck to them.
