Why does 'bé' stand in front? It is an adjective and adjectives follow the main word in Vietnamese. So in the word 'cậu bé' 'bé' stands after, but this word 'bé gái' looks like an exception.
I think it might be a noun in this one meaning "baby" which gives the indication of little. I am not sure, but someone mentioned this for a different version of boy.
Anyway, I have not seen that rule about adjectives following the main word in Vietnamese. There seem to be many words like this.

I couldn't get the link to show correctly with it as it kept switching from Vietnamese-English dictionary to getting stuck at the accent and so giving the English-Vietnamese dictionary instead.
so perhaps that is why my answer "you are a girl" is incorrect because i missed out the bé (little)?
Yes, I think that "girl" is "cô gái" while "bé gái" is "little girl". http://www.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~duc/TD/td/index.php?word=girldb=ev
In "cậu bé", "bé" is not really an adjective. "Cậu bé" is a noun means boy. If you remove the "bé", it'd become a different word. Also, "bé gái" is a noun means girl. In Vietnamese, an adjective always follows a noun. There's no exception. "Little" is not necessary in this case because a boy is already little
1: You are BANNED from LALA Land & MOE's TAVERN, BECAUSE you're a baby girl with temper tantrums: always screaming at are friend GAI**"
II: You are not a bad guy. You are a nice little girl. :)
III: Don't BE MIGHT GAI, be you.
♫ BAN LA MOI BAY GUY
Bạn là một bé gái.
Ban la mot be gai
"ban" is so contextual. with what certainty is it always "you". It can refer to mutual pronouns depending on the context.
Then I put "you are" and it said it was wrong. Being pretty picky with the capital letter here. But doesn't care for other questions.
"Little" is not necessary here! "Girl" is already "Bé gái"! So if I remove "little", it'd be still ok
Why no "n" sound after "một"? Does it depend on the following letter of next word?
