Hi - how's it going?

My name's Chris, I'm a developer from Melbourne, Australia. I work for a large Australian retailer developing in-house software solutions.

I'm super passionate about all things coding, especially in the web development space.

My preferred languages include:

  • PHP
  • ActionScript 3
  • The HTML/JS/CSS stack
  • mySQL

comment Does an adjective apply to both nouns when joined with 'and'?
Ok. I'm going to play devil's advocate for a moment - what happens if I say "blue shirts and small socks", are the socks still blue? And if yes, what happens if I say "blue shirts and red socks"? The first adjective (small) doesn't negate the blue, so the socks would be small and blue? But the second adjective (red) does negate the blue adjective, so the socks are no longer blue? So the rule would be, the adjective attached to the first noun in a conjunction applies to the second noun, unless the second noun has an adjective that negates it?

@Kris: Not to try to justify asking a question in the first place, but the amount of conversation this is generating shows, in my opionion, that there is merit in asking this question.

@MattЭллен - This is my exact point. Maybe my example wasn't clear, but there is a distinct difference between electronic engineer, and electronics engineer. One is a robot, one is not. Although not as clear, there is a slight difference between a chemical shelf and a chemicals shelf

@Kris: I'm not sure if my doubts are unfounded, when there seems to be a mix of answers, some indicating with the 's', some without.
