Adjectives are placed before a noun, or after a linking verb.

The usual order of adjectives for a single noun is:

- Determiner and number

- Observations and opinions (can sometimes follow size and shape)

- Size, shape, and properties

- Age

- Color

- Nationality or origin

- Material

* any noun adjunct immediately precedes the noun
