In phrases like “beckon call” (which doesn’t really seem to be the correct phrase, as others have pointed out) or “jump start”, the words “beckon” and “jump” would be either an adjective (if the other word is used as a noun) or an adverb (if the other word is used as a verb) as they both modify the word after them.
“Can you jump start my car?” “Jump” is an adverb that modifies the verb “start” since there are also other ways to start a car. You can do a normal start with the starter motor, you can get a push start if it’s a stick-shift, etc.)
“I had to give someone a jump start.” (here, “start” is used a a noun, instead of a verb, so “jump” is an adjective. And this is probably a case of a verb being “nouned” which, incidentally, is the opposite of what’s happened to Google or other nouns, where the noun has become a verb such as “I will google it.”)

All that clothing makes it harder to swim. They should remove it.

Often they can walk a short ways so if they park the car right next to the back door, they can carry a bag or two at a time even when they can’t handle walking the parking lot, walking up and down aisles getting 4-5 bags worth of stuff and standing in line for 10 mins and then walking back out to the parking area. Been there, done that (when having a gout flareup or such.)
