Notes On Attributive Noun - CBSE Class 7 English Grammar
ATTRIBUTIVE NOUN. A noun that modifies another noun:  Steel in steel bridge; London in London house. Nouns used in this way are sometimes said to be adjectives or to behave like adjectives. They are generally not used predicatively: the bridge is steel is possible, *the house is London impossible. Phrases with attributive nouns are common, and are similar to COMPOUND NOUNS like teapot and coffee jug. However, such phrases have the same stress patterns as adjectival phrases (equal stress: a big house , a London house).
