2. Many adjectives can be placed after the noun they describe.
Few adjectives can be used immediately after a noun.
Available, imaginable, possible and suitable are few of the adjectives which can be used just before a noun.
However we use these adjectives just after the nouns only when the noun follows words such as first, last, next, only and superlative adjectives.
• It is the only treatment suitable. • It is an offer available only to the club members. • It is the only solution imaginable to overcome this problem. • It is the only possible route that we could take.
3. Few adjectives take different meanings when they change their position between after or before the noun.
Concerned, opposite, present, concerned, responsible and involved are few of such adjectives.
• I was asked for my present address. (My address now) • All the people present approved of the decision. (Who were there)
• The party was excellent. I want to thank the people concerned. (Involved) • Cars drive too past the school and concerned teachers complained to the police. (Worried)
