Duolingo tells me that some adjectives change their meaning depending on if the adjective comes before the noun, or after the noun. When it comes before the noun, the adjective takes a more figurative meaning, and when it comes after the noun, it takes a more literal meaning.
For example, "un grand homme" means "a great man", and "un homme grand" means "a tall man".
My question: which meaning does it take when a pronoun is used and thus there is no "before the noun or after the noun" placement, as in "Il est [adjective]"? For example,
- "C'est mon ami. Il est grand."
