Re: possessivness dilemma
So it would be unnatural to use bike as an attributive noun and say: Somebody has stolen my bike wheel? (Even I can feel it.) In which cases canone use structures with nouns functioning as attributives? You can't say "the table leg" either, but structures of this type are possible with other nouns. What's the difference in use of such structures?
