The Secret Rules of Adjective Order

By Katy Waldman

 

Have you ever wondered why we say “a long, cold day” instead of “a cold, long day”? Why does one way sound right and the other sound oh, so wrong? Is this something we learn officially in school or is this something we pick up as we learn to speak? If you’re a language geek like I am, you’ll love this article, “The Secret Rules of Adjective Order” by Katy Waldman at Slate on linguistics and the study of adjective order. 

So check it out, leave a comment or two, and let me know what you think!

Happy writing!
