I wonder if there is a rhetorical or philosophical significance attached to the habit within the use of the English language of introducing adjectives and such before introducing the object to which those adjectives pertain.

Consider a "red apple." For those of us that use the English language in some way, it is less common for us to think and speak firstly in terms of that there an object and secondly that object has the properties of ..., which, in this case, "is" the property of being/appearing the color red.

Let me consider (1) the two experiences that brought this closer to my mind and (2) some of my analysis of the matter.
