Developmental normative data on the preferred adjective ordering phenomenon are reported. The ages considered range from college age to 9 years of age. The results show that the ordering phenomenon is well established by the ninth year. The results also show that the variance of the scale values of the adjectives on the dimension of preferred order is greater for older Ss than for younger Ss.
