Hello,

According to general rules adjectives come in this order;

Opinion, Size, Age, Shape, Colour, Origin, Material, Purpose , but in this example the order is different. A wide long street.
Does this mean that these rules don't always apply?

And in this exampe too.

It's ____ film. (It says that A is right)
a beautiful old.
an old beautiful.
If the correct answer is B then the order is wrong.

It's ____ village. (Here the test says that B is correct)
an old lovely
a lovely old

Do you agree with the answers of the test?

Thanks

Nina_Nia in this example the order is different. A wide long street.
How do you conclude that? Width and length aren't even in the list unless you place them under "Size". Since they are both "Size", then it seems to me that both orders are possible. long wide or wide long. Personally, I'd say long wide, but don't ask me why. Maybe within "Size", "Length" comes before "Width". Emotion: smile
Nina_Niathese rules don't always apply?
I have seen cases where they don't apply, but they usually do.

Yes. I would consider 'beautiful' and 'lovely' opinions, and "Opinion" comes before "Age".

nice old, nice new, beautiful young, great old, ...

CalifJimWidth and length aren't even in the list
That's why I was confused. I thought wide is 'shape' and long is 'size'. Emotion: thinking

Nina_NiaI thought wide is 'shape'
No. Shape would be "square", "circular", "spherical", and so on.

Note that a comma should come between adjectives of the same descriptive category.

a wide‚ long street
a kind, beautiful woman
what if they are not of the same descriptive? should I still use the comma?

No. A handy test to determine whether to use a comma is to insert the word and between the adjectives. If the result makes sense, use a comma.

a sad, lonely man
a sad and lonely man

*a small and yellow box
