Why do we use un tres joli manteau but not un manteau tres joli? Merci!

Bonjour Merve ! The lesson states that in cases where the adjective is used with an adverb, there are two possibilities: - If the adverb contains two syllables or more (i.e. "vraiment gentille"), then the adverb/adjective will be AFTER the noun -> "une fille vraiment gentille" - If the adverb contains one syllable (i.e. "très joli"), then the adverb/adjective will be BEFORE the noun -> "un très joli manteau" I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !

2 or more syllable?

un vraiment beau monument - this is a mistake beacuse >vraiment< has two syllables? and actually should be: un vraiment  monument beau ?

or else?

thanks!
