However, if the noun phrase is generic and indefinite, coordinated adjectives, or adjectives with some clause element added, can be postposed, though such constructions are formal and rather infrequent:
Soldiers timid or cowardly don’t fight well. 
Soldiers normally timid don’t fight well. 
A man usually honest will sometimes cheat.
The more usual constructions are premodification or a relative clause:
Timid or cowardly soldiers ... [
Soldiers who are timid or cowardly ... [5b]
Soldiers who are normally timid ... [
A man who is usually honest ... [
Like relative clauses, postposed adjectives may be restrictive or nonrestrictive, eg:
Soldiers normally timid don’t fight well.
[‘Soldiers who are ...’][generic and indefinite noun head] 
[‘Soldiers who are ...’][类指或不定指名词中心词] 
The soldiers, normally timid, fought bravely.
[‘The soldiers, who were ...’][specific and definite noun head] [6b]
[‘The soldiers, who were ...’][特指或定指名词中心词] [6b]
The adjective of an adjective phrase can often be attributive, leaving its complementation in postposition. Thus, equivalent to sentences  and  are the somewhat more informal sentences [
They have a larger house than yours. [
The easiest boys to teach were in my class. [
