Reader’s question: Are there any rules around where to place enough?
Answer: Place enough after an adjective or adverb, but before a noun.
Margaret isn’t well enough to attend.

When enough comes before a noun it is often followed by the infinitive (to + verb), but an alternative construction using that is on the rise, particularly in American English.
