    Post Order of adjectives

    Hello! Will you explain how I can use the Order of adjectives? I know they come before the noun, but I don't know how I can use two or more together.
    Thank you,
    Marjantaj

    Re: Order the Ajectives

    There are a number of schemes on the internet but none are hard and fast rules. The idea is the the adjective that is most intimately associated with the noun comes last. Then if there are still multiple adjectives, that same analysis is used again.
