A Write Old Muddle
Well here's a funny thing that I learnt in a Facebook article the other day. Did you know that English speakers use a very specific order when there are several adjectives before a word? Us natives know how to do it almost instinctively but it drives those who are learning our language nuts. The order goes:
Quantity or number
Quality or opinion.
Purpose or qualifier
And if you don't believe me, try mixing them up. There are multi-coloured, little, wonderful, five kittens in the blog's picture today!
