Opinion, size, age, shape, color, origin, material, purpose. Switch them around and everybody is looking at you funny. I've been speaking the president's English for decades and I never even noticed!
Never knew that. And I am not too thrilled about knowing now…. From this day on whenever I use more than one adjective, I'll wonder about the order. Because, yeah, like the interesting, short BBC (yes, that order sounds good) article said: almost impossible to learn!
Zloth, thanks… Not.
