1. There’s an officially correct order for cumulative adjectives. It goes like this:
- article or other noun marker
- evaluative word
- length or shape
- the noun being modified
So, you could say: the hideous enormous triangular ancient blue Persian Buddhist granite house boat, but you could not say: the Persian ancient enormous house granite hideous triangular Buddhist blue boat. Don’t make that mistake!
2. The words Ping Pong, Loafer, and Realtor are all registered trademarks. To avoid any conflict, you must use table tennis, casual shoe, and real estate agent instead.

Now you know.
