Hi there,

Can you proofread the following descriptions?

The reason why the words ‘possible’ and ‘available’ usually come after a noun instead of before a noun is that it is affected by French grammar. These two words originally come from French.

Thanks

Hi there,

Can I say 'goes after the noun' instead of 'come after the noun'?

Thanks

Yes...but note in what context we would use each:
If you were showing me sentences with both words in them, you might say to me, "Notice how they usually come after a noun. This is because of their origins in French, and being affected by French grammar."

If you were correcting some writing I had done, and I had placed the words incorrectly in the sentences, you might say," 'available' usually goes/comes after the noun. This is because..."
