Notes on the correct use of enough

When enough modifies an adjective or adverb, it normally comes after the adjective/adverb.

She is old enough to know better. (NOT She is enough old to know better.)

When enough modifies an adjective and noun together, it comes before the adjective.

Compare:

We haven稚 bought enough ripe mangoes. (= We need more ripe mangoes.)

We haven稚 bought ripe enough mangoes. (= The mangoes that we bought aren稚 ripe enough.)
