Adjectives in a Series

When there are two adjectives describing the same subject, it can be confusing to determine whether or not there should be a comma placed between the two adjectives. An easy way to see if it would be appropriate to add the comma is to insert either the conjunction “and” or the conjunction “but” between the two adjectives. If, after the interjection, the sentence still makes sense, it is okay to add the comma. Another way to determine whether or not there should be a comma is to identify the similarity of the two adjectives. If the adjectives are both describing the same aspect of the subject, a comma should be added.
