What is the capital of Tunisia?

Quand doit-on placer les adjectifs de taille devant des noms ?

Pour des adjectifs aussi courants que grand, petit, ou beau, en plus de se placer devant le nom, le groupe que cela forme (un petit homme, un grand monsieur, de beaux draps…), employé très couramment au fil du temps, a pris certaines connotations.

Pour obtenir le sens littéral de ces adjectifs, on « casse » ce phénomène en plaçant l’adjectif après le nom, et ça sonnera bizarre, parce que le sens — connoté — le plus courant de l’adjectif est « évité ».

As very common adjectives such as grand, petit, or beau are employed so frequently, the groups they form with many common nouns somehow become expressions, with a sense of their own, not being the exact sum of the adjective and the noun.

If you want to express the adjective literally, you have to “break” this association, and put the adjective after the noun (everyone will acknowledge it’s a bizarre way, only you need it in that case, and it will be understood as such).
