Adjective placement.

Adjective placement.

Hi, the workout provided these alternative answers: -

“Quel bonhomme de neige magnifique les enfants !”

“Quel magnifique bonhomme de neige les enfants !” 

In this case it's OK to place 'magnifique' either before or after the noun.

Is there a rule that states when some adjectives can be placed either before or after the noun? 

Thank you

Hi Stewart,

In this case, it's just a matter of preference, both are correct some people will put the adjective before the noun and others after.

Bonne Continuation !
