Salvete! Is there a rule governing whether an adjective precedes or follows the noun it is describing? Does it resemble French in that it depends on the adjective in question? Would 'the little brown dog' be 'parvis canis fuscus' and not 'parvis fuscus canis'? Gratis!
No! That's one of the cool things about Latin.Is there a rule governing whether an adjective precedes or follows the noun it is describing?
There are patterns which you'll come to intuit (or read or hear about) at a far later stage in your Latin experience, but for now I'd say relish and get familiar with word order in Latin, in general and in respect to your specific scenario, as being quite flexible.
Btw, it's parvus, not parvis (maybe a typo on your part).
