Maybe someone can help me.
We all know that adjectives come before the nuon they are modifying. OK, now problems.
The blue car is not there anymore.
Now let´s look at this sentence:
The car blue is not there anymore.
Our first reaction is to mark it with a red pen and ask the student to rewrite the sentence. But, could it not be a case of reduced adjective clause?
The car (which/that is) blue is not there anymore.
My question is:
Is it correct to use a reduced adjective clause in this situation? If not, why?
