"The big apple"
Translation:La grosse pomme
How do you know whether to put the adjective before or after the noun? "Le chat noir" is correct, but "la pomme grosse" is not?
look at this, quite useful: http://french.about.com/od/grammar/a/adjectives_4.htm
An apple can be small or big = petite ou grosse. Basically, "grande" means "tall".
