Suggested Acronym

I don't know if this has been suggested already, but I've heard this acronym as a rule-of-thumb (not an absolute rule) for which adjectives in French come before a noun: 

BAGS (Beauty, Age, Good or Bad, Size)

Bonjour Jeffrey,

You are correct that, as a rule of thumb, the 'BAGS' (Beauty, Age, Good or Bad, Size), 'BRAGS' (Beauty, Rank, Age, Goodness or Size) or 'BANGS' (Beauty, Age, Number, Goodness or Size) adjectives do come before the noun. 

Merci pour votre contribution. 

Bonne journée !
