While it is never to late to learn, another lifetime is a good idea, firstly for me to learn how to live and secondly to learn to write English prose.
A review in the Newcastle paper, The Herald, gave us the key to the use of adjectives.  A revelation. A suggestion for the word order of adjectives is there and word order is significant in English. No expert told me about the use of adjectives which usually stumps me.
  Goodness, recently it took me hours to recall the name  behind Universal Grammar namely Noam Chomsky who presents counter intuitive theories of language learning. Very mysterious.
