A good candidate
But what if the candidate has the potential (n) to be good?
Should I say
- A potentially good candidate
- A potential good candidate
- A good potential candidate
In No.1, the adverb potentially modifies the adjective good. In No.2, the adjective potential modifies the noun – candidate while in No.3, the adjective good modifies the noun phrase potential candidate.
Are all three sentences correct or is one of the three “more“ grammatically correct?
