    Re: Enough

    With some words such as money and time we can use enough before or after the noun; but now I come to think of it, probably, and judging by the results of the poll, 'enough' can only go before time here because of the to-infinitive expressing purpose. On the other hand it is not the same I have enough big nails and big enough nails...Therefore, in a nutshell, I don't have the faintest idea. Please, tell me.

    Re: Enough

    I knew that both "enough time" and "time enough" were right. But yet, I prefered take the second one because I often use it.

    Re: Enough

    "enough time" sounds better and looks to fit into the sentence.

    Re: Enough

    I think time enough is possible but I'm not really sure so I voted for the first one. I suppose it's either literary or oldish English because it doesn't seem very usual.

    Re: Enough

    Unfortunately there is never enough time, but should I find time enough to vote one day, I might consider doing so.
