I’m a little confused on cumulative adjectives. Everywhere I look, it says that you cannot put “and” between cumulative adjectives and the order cannot be reversed.
To me, it seems like you can put "and" between some cumulative adjectives.
The man is smart and Jewish.
Would this be considered wrong? It doesn’t sound bad to me for some reason.
Also, I understand that cumulative adjectives need to be placed in a certain order, but does the meaning actually change when you reverse the order?
I just want to know whether or not I can write a sentence like the one above and what changing the order of cumulative adjectives does to the meaning.
Two huge American footballers saved the woman.
American huge two footballers saved the woman.
I know this second sentence is incorrect and even sounds incorrect, but is the meaning really different from the first sentence? Isn’t the meaning in both sentences two footballers who are huge and American saved the woman?
Is there any other type of meaning that could be interpreted in the incorrect example I gave?
