This paper introduces a class-based ap- proach to ordering prenominal modifiers. Modifiers are grouped into broad classes based on wherethey tend to occur prenom- inally, and a framework is developed to or- der sets ofmodifiers based on their classes. This system is developed to generate sev- eral orderings for modifiers with more flexible positional constraints, and lends itself to bootstrapping for the classification of previously unseen modifiers.
