ASK A QUESTION "El hombre pobre, o El pobre hombre"
¡ El hombre no tiene mas mucho dinero!
¿Esta es un hombre pobre , o él es un pobre hombre?
The man does not have much money ,, "he is a poor man"
Which statement best reflects this,-pobre before or after Hombre?
Pobre is one of those adjectives whose meaning depends on position, so this is a really good question! You have my vote! Let me explain:
This is the list of adjectives that can appear before or after the subject and this position changes its meaning.
el pobre niño = the poor, unfortunate little boy
el hombre pobre = the poor man (without money)
There is an important difference in meaning!
Let me know if you want more details or further explanation. Hope this helps...
You got to say "el hombre pobre" (a man with few money).
"el pobre hombre" means like "the poor devil", an unlucky one, not just about money, in life in general.
I would think " hombre pobre" but wait for someone more experienced. I'm also going to watch this for an answer because I'm not sure "mas" belongs in there.
If you are trying to say,
"The poor man does not have enough money". (is this what you were trying to say with mas mucho?)...you would say "El hombre pobre no tiene dinero bastante (or suficiente)."
Bastante = enough
You could also use:
Suficiente = sufficient
In the Reference section under Grammar ->Adjectives -> Placement you'll find a good amount of information which will help, including 18 adjectives which change meaning according to placement.
I'm really glad you asked this question, it prompted me to look it up and find something else to learn and practise!
