In English adjectives are used before nouns.
Sometimes several adjectives are used in front of a noun. The following table and examples will help you remember their order.
General qualities come before particular ones.
- Example: dark-blue velvet dress
Personal opinion comes before more objective words.
- Example: delicious chocolate cake
Usually only two or three adjectives are used before the noun. All other descriptive details are used afterwards.
- Example: a beautiful new silk blouse, decorated with shiny buttons.
