    Adjective expression


    Would you say that this adjective expression is correct?

    (Including the specific order).

    "Small-sized, portable, easily carried model"

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Adjective expression


    What about, small, portable model? Sized sounds awkward--it's also redundant. Speaking of which, easily carried could be redundant too, given that something that is portable could also be easily carried. If you decide to keep it in, that's fine, but I'd omit sized. The word order is fine.

    All the best.
