What is the correct comma placement for this sentence?
The plump old white cat basked in the warm sunlight.
a)plump, old, white cat
b)plump, old white cat
Read #5 -- then let us know what you think.
The plump, old white cat
You need two commas.
Another way to tell is by putting the adjectives in a different order. If you can rearrange the adjectives and it still makes sense, then use commas.
"That tall, distinguished, good looking fellow" = That distinguished, good looking, tall fellow ...
If you cannot rearrange them and still have it sound OK, then don't use commas -- e.g., "three little old ladies..." (You can't say "old little three ladies" and have it be smooth English!!)
Thank you very much!
You're very welcome! =)
