Adjectives before nouns
If adjectives must be placed before nouns, why is this sentence incorrect?
Juan took a full of food backpack...
'Full of food' is used as an adjective here, but incorrectly. When you use this type of construction, you should use dashes between the words.
Juan took a full-of-food backpack...
This would be correct, but it is awkward. 'A backpack full of food' would be the more common construction.
