The word semiconductor is a noun. Semiconductor means (1) a conductor made with semiconducting material, (2) a substance as germanium or silicon whose electrical conductivity is intermediate between that of a metal and an insulator; its conductivity increases with temperature and in the presence of impurities.
The following articles and web pages elaborate on the word semiconductor.
