Order of Adjectives in English



Believe it or not, there is a specific order that adjectives follow when English speakers are describing something. In this lesson, I discuss this order, so you will never have to feel embarrassed about your word order again. This is helpful in writing, as well as speaking.

    Please help me out, or correct me if i'm wrong.
    I have always noticed how many teachers explain the order of the adjectives.
    but i haven't come across their explaining in how to modify a particular part in a complex noun.
    for example, INDIVIDUAL "achievement award application". In my opinion the adjective Individual is modifying the whole complex noun, but what if i need to modify a specif part of that complex noun?
    what if i want to modify "achievement" with the adjective INDIVIDUAL?
    I think this should be something like this: award application of INDIVIDUAL achievement?
    (I know all of this doesnt make sense but it is just for the sake of learning.)
    Note the introduction of "of" ( award application of INDIVUAL achievement)
    what if i want to modify "award" with INDIVIDUAL.

    This should be something like this.
    INDIVIDUAL award application of achievement?
    the question now though is, is INDIVIDUAL modifying only "award" or modifyng "award appliction of achievement?

    Maybe for lack of a better example i have chosen these scenario, but in my native language the position of the adjective es very important and we don´t have so many adjective compounds with nouns.
    For this we use entonation for differentiate when an adjective modify a complex noun (using "of" in SPANISH) or we position it next to the noun.

    Thanks for your reply.
