    Default adjectival noun

    Hello Teachers,

    1. I would like a table in the corner.

    I have to rewrite this sentence in this way

    I would like a corner table.


    I want to know what kind of transformation this is.

    Can anybody give some more example.

    Thanks.

    Hello Hanuman

    The noun 'corner' from the adverbial phrase 'in the corner' is used attributively in 'corner table', i.e. as if it were an adjective.

    Bye,
