I think normaly it would be used with a determiner (the/that), but here it seems to have justbeen omitted, as in this case: tall-ass girl

What do you think?
Thank you.

    That is extremely common in colloquial speech where I'm from. The that you'd expect there is definitely omitted but implied. It's not grammatical in standard English by any means.

    I absolutely find myself deleting determiners like that when I am out with friends but I would never ever do it at work.
