Order of Adjectives : 

Order of Adjectives When you put more than one adjective together, there is an order that looks natural. Let’s try: Put the following adjectives in order. the Italian beautiful touring old car Answer: beautiful old Italian touring I saw the beautiful old Italian touring car. The order seems confusing, but there is a general rule that you can follow.

Order of Adjectives : 

Order of Adjectives 1)DETERMINER (the, two, this, her) 2)OPINION (lovely, useful) 3)SIZE (big, enormous) 4)AGE (mature, ancient, old) 5)SHAPE (square, oval) 6)COLOR (red, pink) 7)ORIGIN (American, English) 8)MATERIAL (wooden, cotton) 9)PURPOSE (typing, sun) More examples? See handout

Rules : 

Rules NOTE: We usually use no more than three adjectives preceding a noun. There is a general rule that we follow, but there may be exceptions.

Example : 

Example A man is dancing. (no adjectives) Add adjectives one by one (from the last category) A stunt man is dancing. (purpose) A Russian stunt man is dancing. (origin) An old Russian stunt man is dancing. (age) A big old Russian stunt man is dancing. (size)

Practice : 

Practice The cat ran away. Let’s add some adjectives. (from the first category) Remember, we don’t use more than three adjectives in a series.

Tips : 

Tips When using two or more adjectives from different categories, we don’t put commas. When using two adjectives from the same category, put a comma: I saw the beautiful, expensive purse. I touched her soft, silky hair. OR The purse was beautiful and expensive.
