double adjectives

If I want to describe a noun with 2 adjectives how do I do it?
For example if I want to say a noble and excelent warrior should it be tsamsiyu anawm sì atxantsan (that would be impossible since the adjective should be next to its noun) or nawma tsamsiyu atxantsansì?
irayo in advance

Attributive adjectives must always be adjacent to their noun, so you can either write [adj]-a [noun] a-[adj] (no ), or use them predicatively with lu: [noun] a lu [adj] sì [adj].

So either nawma tsamsiyu atxantsan or tsamsiyu a lu nawm sì txantsan is correct. If you want to attribute more than two adjectives you must use the second form.
We learn from our mistakes only if we are made aware of them.
If I make a mistake, please bring it to my attention for karma.
