You know, that's interesting. I read an article that explains that in English there is a very structured order in which adjectives must go, which native English speakers obey instinctively but which does in the heads of learners. But all languages must have the possibility of multiple adjectives on one noun, so how do they deal with it?
OK makes sense. but to jruhl01's point, in English, you would say "a long blue skirt" but never "a blue long skirt". I recall the article Morag_kerr mentions and she is correct adjectives have a pre-defined order in English. Are you suggesting that in Gaidhlig, "Sgriort fhada ghorm" and "Sgriort ghorm fhada" are interchangeable and both are correct?
I think I found the article Morag refers to. it says, Adjectives in English absolutely have to be in this order: opinion-size-age-shape-colour-origin-material-purpose Noun. So you can have a lovely little old rectangular green French silver whittling knife. But, if you mess with the word order in the slightest you will sound like a maniac. It’s an odd thing that every English speaker uses this rule, but almost none of us could write it out.

does the same rule apply in Gaidhlig or other languages?
