    Smile Is "time enough to~" possible?

    I don't have enough time to take a trip. vs. I don't have time enough to take a trip.

    As I know, 'enough' comes in front of 'nouns.' But in the Cobuild dictionary, they say 'time enough' is also possible. For example, sometimes 'enough' comes after the following nouns such as "time, room, momey, food..."

    What do you think??

    Adjective or adverb + enough :
    fast enough, clever enough, hard enough [enough = to the necessary degree]

    Enough + noun:

    enough time, enough money [enough , here, means: as much as is necessary]

    You can also use 'to + infinitive' after enough:

    We don`t have time enough to take a trip.
    I don`t have money enough to buy a car.
