We can use adjectives together to give a detailed description of something.
Adjectives that express opinions usually come before all others, but it can sometimes depend on what exactly you want to emphasise.
Monica has a nice, big, blue purse. (She likes the purse.)
“That’s a nice blue.” (She likes the colour.)
When we group adjectives together there is a general (sometimes flexible) rule for the position of each type of adjective, these are:-
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th
Opinion Size Age Shape Colour Material Origin Purpose
Nice Small Old Square Black Plastic British Racing
Ugly Big New Circular Blue Cotton American Running
