which way does it go'?
I want to write a sentence and I'm not sure which way to put it.
"con su esposa bonita" o "con su bonita esposa"
I certainly could be wrong, but I believe "con su bonita esposa" would sound more natural. Wouldn't "con su esposa bonita" imply that the man had more than one wife, and the speaker was referring to the bonita one? Putting the adjective in front of the noun in this case implies that the trait is one that is accepted or well known. Also, "con su bonita esposa" gets quite a few googits from native speakers. Again, I'd be happy to be corrected by a native speaker, but this is my understanding.
in some circumstances the noun can go after the adjective but it alters the meaning, example
un presidente grande - a large or big president (here the noun before adjective denotes size)
un gran presidente - a great president (here the noun after the adjective denotes stature or standing)
I would say that would be the best way.
You are welcome.
so it would be "esposa bonita"? that's what I was thinking too,
Nouns generally go before the adjectives.
