An adjective is a word that modifies, or describes a noun or pronoun. When you use two or more adjectives together, you separate them with a comma.
Examples: solid, gold watch
Smooth, polished stone
Sticky, yellow paper
Some adjectives are made by adding endings to proper nouns. These are called proper adjectives. Always begin a proper adjective with a capital letter. Here are some examples.

ADJECTIVES TELL WHAT KIND, HOW MANY, OR WHICH ONE

Some adjectives tell how many: ten lorries or many lorries.
Other adjectives tell which ones: this lorry or these lorries.
Usually, two or more adjectives that come before a noun or pronoun are separated with commas.

However, adjectives that tell number, size, shape and age often do not require commas.
