    available - possible ... position in the sentence

    Hi,

    I read in a grammar book (Michael Swan) the "available" and "possible" are used after the noun:

    Please send me all the tickets available.
    Tuesday's the only date possible.


    Couldn't you say...?

    Please send me all the available tickets.
    Tuesday's the only possible date.


    Thnks!

    Yes.

    Swan said that these words can be used after the noun, not that they must be.
