Adjectives in Persian

Word order for adjective-noun phrases in Persian is different from English.
In English adjective comes first, followed by noun, i.e.:
Adjective + Noun
beautiful + day
Whereas, in Persian noun comes first followed by e-link and adjective:
Noun + e-link + Adjective
/ruz/ + /e/ + /zibā/

پزشک مهربان Listen /pezešk-e mehrabān/ kind doctor
