    Use of Noun

    Hi, I wonder if the structure of "noun of noun noun" is grammatically correct or not, just like the example of "King of Pop poster", should it be written as "Pop King poster", "King of Pop's poster" or "poster of King of Pop" to refer as "Micheal Jackson's poster", otherwise it means "poster Pop King" or "Pop poster King", i.e. a outstanding person who is associated with posters or a person who is outstanding for popular posters?

    Re: Use of Noun

    In "a King of Pop poster" "King of Pop" is acting as an adjective describing the poster.
