I recently read a news article which used the phrase:
"un important carambolage"
Which I took to mean "A significant pileup"
"important" is before the noun here, so my thinking was, that because it's a reference to size it falls into the "bangs" category of adjectives, however my dictionary uses the phrase:
"une somme importante"
To mean "a significant sum" as an example usage of "important", so why isn't it before the noun in this instance? I feel there may be some nuance I'm missing here.
