Multiple Adjectives

Commas are used to separate adjectives in a list when they are all describing the same noun.

Commas are left out when one adjective is describing another.

Summary

When ordering adjectives consider if it is objective, which is a definite fact, or subjective, that is more opinionated.

When using multiple adjectives, use commas if they are all describing the same noun, but not when one adjective is describing another.

If there are multiple adjectives, the objective adjectives go closer to the noun than the subjective ones.
