    Order of adjectives


    Adjective placement

    Where should I put my adjectives? When you use several adjectives, please use the following order to build your sentence. Please note that sentences containg 4 (or more!) adjectives are very awkward and should be split into several sentences.


    Opinion
    >> an interesting movie, an exciting journey


    Dimension
    >> a large house, a big car


    Age

    >> an old boat, a young boy


    Shape
    >> an oval carpet, a round table


    Colour
    >> a grey raincoat, a green door


    Origin
    >> French bread, a Japanese town


    Material
    >> a plastic bottle, a wooden treasure


    EXAMPLES:
    >A wonderful old Italian clock. (opinion - age - origin)
    >A big square blue box. (dimension - shape - colour)
    >A disgusting pink plastic ornament. (opinion - colour - material)
