comment The relation between “temporal” and “time”
It's very interesting, in "time customer", the adjective "time" qualifies the product that the customer is interested in, but in "temporal customer", "temporal" qualifies the inherent qualities of the customer. This difference seems to exist in, for instance, "space/spatial customer" as well. If both "time" and "temporal" are adjectivals, is there a more specific term for what "temporal" is, as opposed to "time"(as an adjunct noun adjective)?

comment The relation between “temporal” and “time”
Hi Andrew, thanks for your informative answer. I'm not a linguist, so I can't really get a mental lock on the difference between "time stamp" and "temporal stamp" (even though I reckon the latter sounds unlikely). So, this isn't simply a matter of connotation, is it?
