Can a noun adjunct be considered as an adjective in any case?

The answer to the following question - Is this noun used as an adjective? - barely gives me an answer.

  • Perhaps you need to give an example of what you consider a noun adjunct. The answers to the linked questions pretty much cover the (usually) first element of a compound like chicken soup or houseplant. – KarlG May 28 '18 at 7:18
  • "Some nouns often act like adjectives, some only do it sometimes, and others rarely or never act like adjectives. To make matters even more confusing, some words are both nouns and full adjectives." GrammarGirl quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/noun-or-adjective – Kris May 28 '18 at 7:34
