  16. Mr. W says:

    Thank you for this. I caught it on the Khan app, and honestly I'd never thought of it before. I don't know that I agree with this 100%. Opinion and size are interchangeable in order. Think of Roald Dahl's Big Friendly Giant, which is is size-opinion-object. One can also think of a large scary caterpillar, or small foolish things. Perhaps there should be a note on this in the video?

  17. Benjamin L. Stewart says:

    Cumulative adjectives do not require a comma and follow a specific order while coordinate adjectives require a comma (for three or more) and may be arranged in any order. Both may be either attributive or predicate adjectives.
