Adjective Order in English – English Grammar Lesson



Learn about adjective order in English with this lesson. When you use several adjectives with a noun in English, the adjectives have to go in a specific order. For example, we say “strong black Italian coffee,” but you can’t say “strong Italian black coffee” or “Italian black strong coffee.” Why not? Because of the adjective order rules. Learn more about adjectives and improve your grammar with online English lessons:

You can see the full lesson (which includes the text and a quiz to help you practice) here:

Contents:
Rule #1: Opinions go first and facts go second 1:57
Rule #2: General ideas go before specific ideas 3:30
The full rule: 5:21

The basic rules for adjective order are:

– Opinions go before facts
– General ideas go before specific ideas

There’s also a more complicated rule, which you’ll see in the video.

You can learn more about these adjective order rules and how to use them in the video lesson.

  • What about 2 facts? Is it ok to say "private American college" or "American private college"? I think American private college is correct.

  • Hello!
    Could you correct me if I'm wrong?
    (Ans for one of ur eg. Questions)
    'She's short black straight hair'

    ya _yaz July 26, 2020 4:51 pm Reply
  • Ok, so 'short' comes before 'straight' because it's more general?
    " She has short straight black hair" – that is correct, right?
    Great video, btw 🙂

  • What should go first: age or shape ?
    Different sources gives different order of these two adjectives. Some sources say that age should go before shape and the other say that shape should go before age.

  • why it is important ? i dont' think it is really compicated subject, but – why ? :> what had been genesis of this strange rule ? why need "opinion" before "fact" especially…. what mean "Green as specific idea and not a general idea"… :> what mean "Silk is a fact, but Green isn't fact"… :> "Silk" can be "opinion" too…
