North (adj) and northern (adj) are interchangeable? If not, how can we distinguish them clearly?
Ex: North London = Northern London? (1)
The north bank of the river. =The northern bank of the river? (2)
The north slopes of the mountains. =The northern slopes of the mountains. ?(3)
North Scotland. = Northern Scotland? (4)
North accent =Northern accent? (5)
North climate = Northern climate? (6)
Some are interchangeable (north/northern bank of the river).
Some are not (northern accent, northern climate).

Not much help, I'm afraid.
All the page is full up with your questions like that... English is not mathematics, it is just a language..
You don't need to question the grammar of the language like that because I believe that there is no formula or explanation for the most of your questions....
