INGILIZCE ADJECTIVE WORD ORDER

Postby yapay-zeka » Wed Jul 11, 2018 4:34 pm

When we describe a noun, there is a certain order that adjectives follow:

opinion + size + age + colour + origin + material + noun

eg. a beautiful, big, medieval, silver, Roman, metal sword.

However, we try not to put too many adjectives in front of a noun! We avoid doing this by adding phrases with ‘and’, ‘with’, or ‘in’ or adding a relative clause.

eg. an original oil painting signed and dated by the artist
