IELTS Grammar: adjectives after nouns?

As I'm sure you know, we normally place the adjective in front of the noun in English e.g. "the red car" instead of "the car red".

However, English is a crazy language, and rules are there to be broken!

If you read yesterday's lesson (and clicked on this link), you may have seen the following examples of noun + adjective:

  • someone important
  • somewhere nice
  • the best room available
  • the only decision possible
  • the worst choice imaginable
  • the person responsible
Remember: The 'rules' that you find in an intermediate (or even 'advanced') grammar book are probably a simplification. There are deeper levels to be discovered!
