I kept transcribing "multos libros" and getting it wrong... while all my brain could focus on was case and number, not word order.


The word order should not matter (in this sentence), so report it and it will be added. But, adjectives have a tendency to be right behind the noun they describe.


"the" happy student should be accepted.


it should not matter if the adjective is before or after the noun
