    Post Order Of Modification

    What is the order of modification for 'memories' in :

    "He had vivid memories of the game"

    Should 'vivid' be applied to 'memories' first, and then 'of the game' applied to 'vivid memories', to get this order of modification:

    "He had [ [ vivid memories ] of the game ]"

    or should 'of the game' be applied to 'memories' first, then 'vivid' applied to 'memories of the game', to get this order of modification:

    "He had [ vivid [ memories of the game ] ]"
