Comment:
In a N + di + N + A string, final placement of the adjective results in ambiguity: N + di + N can be interpreted as a phrasal compound, postmodified by A; alternatively, A can be interpreted as modifying the N to which it is adjacent only. As can be seen here, where A follows the head N, the phrasal interpretation is the only one available.
