Generally, the adjective order in English is:                   



1. My brother lives in a lovely, gigantic, ancient, brick house.

2. My sister adopted a beautiful big white bulldog.

3. I want to buy a beautiful, new, blue, European car.

4. She had a big, ugly, old, baggy, blue, stripey, cotton, British, knitting bag.


We use some adjectives only after a link verb:


                  Our teacher was ill.     We had an ill teacher.



I guess example 4 shows a couple of inconsistencies; I mean shouldn't be first Ugly instead of Big? also shouldn't be British before Cotton?
