I have searched all over for this answer, so please forgive me if it’s been asked.
Are there hard and fast rules for multiple attributives (i.e. i-adjectives+noun, na-adjectives+na+nouns, short form verbs+nouns, nouns+no+nouns)? There are so many articles on how to chain together multiple predicates (with て form or で or と) but it’s never clear if it applies to attributives.
- If I’m chaining multiple adjectives (the quick brown fox) or verbs (the agent who shoots and kills), do I need to use the te form?
- What about adjectives together with short form verbs? (The big man who brings the mail)
- Does Japanese have a natural order of preference for attributes (verbs first, then adjectives, then no nouns?)
Thanks for helping me clear this up.
