We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I once bought a product made in China that required assembly. The English directions were adequate except for a tiny quirk. In place of the word 'screw' as in "screw the top to the side...' it used the "F" word. Someone who was not a native English speaker but knew that screw and "F@&k" meant the same thing, had written the instructions.
I would certainly say "big, round, red rubber bouncing ball." That may be because I associate "red" and "rubber" so closely that I wouldn't even put a comma between them, and so would hardly think of splitting them. In fact, "red rubber ball" is so close to a standard combined form that I might say "big, round bouncing red rubber ball" as a second choice. But probably not, because "bouncing ball" also is a standard combined term.
A Comprehensive Grammar of the Engliish Language, Quirk, Greenbaum, Leech and Svartvik, is 2000 pages of such rules. Take a summer and read through it. Once you've read it, the large index at the back becomes useful.
It's called descriptive grammar, and it's rules about what sounds wrong. It's distiniguished from prescriptive grammar, which is what you learned at school, and is what the grammar nazis are always on about.
Unfortunately it's pricey (only $86 when I bought mine in 1986).
