    Re: enough

    So is it always possible to have this structure?
    adjective + enough + noun

    They're beautiful enough models.
    I've had a busy enough day.
    This is a cheap enough car for me to buy.

    The first sentence doesn't work, so the rule doesn't always apply. You could say The models are beautiful enough.

    Sentences 2 and 3 are okay.
    I am not a teacher.
