Why is the adjective before the noun here but not other times?
We use an acronym to remember with goes before nouns BAGS : Beauty (jolie, beau), Age (vieux) Good/Bad (bonne), and Size (petit, gros, haut), there are exceptions however such as laid (ugly), ágê (old), and méchant (mean)
BANGS - N is for number, A is for age, new/old. I see BAGS & BANGS listed often. I learned it as BANGS, but both are essentially correct.
