What is the capital of Tunisia?

Same adjectives, different meanings used together in same sentence

Though it is gramatically correct, you may want to refrain from using it. It may seem like a subjective argument, but in french we tend to avoid at all cost the repetition of the same words. Especially in your examples: mixing the two kind of adjectives (before and after) can easily lead to confusion. It is used in poetry as a stylish effect, but never in a normal conversation.

The repetition would sound a bit weird. You can avoid it and still point out you want to use both meanings of an adjective with this turn of phrase:

“C’était un très grand homme, dans les deux sens du terme”.
