comment What is the difference between 将来 and 未来?
There is some commentary at languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=15848#more-15848 although it takes in Japanese and Korean as well. Sounds like there will be another post on 未来 there soon from Victor Mair's last comment.

又X又Y has a similar problem: "又矮又丑" has about twice as many search results as "又丑又矮"...

Thanks, some interesting ideas. Not sure about two single character words next to each other - how about 小白马?

Thanks, but do you have a reference or can you elaborate a little. "褐色小球" - 284,000 results in Google, "小褐色球" - 384 results: I would consider both grammatically correct but clearly the former is much more common, much like the opposite order "small brown ball" is more common in English.
