Welcome to day one of Blogging from A to Z. If you didn't visit my blog on theme reveal day, I plan to honor the name of my blog with both writing/grammar tips and pictures of horses that I either currently own or have owned in the past. These tips are intended to be useful in everyday writing, not obscure things that only belong in academia.
Today's grammar lesson is when to use commas between a list of adjectives. The rule is to put commas between coordinate adjective - but what is a coordinate adjective? They are adjectives that modify the same noun. If you can use "and" instead of the comma and it still makes sense, then the comma is appropriate.
My gray, dappled horse is named Avashar Solitare. It could also read: My gray and dappled horse...
My gray endurance horse is named Avashar Solitare. It wouldn't make sense to say: My gray and endurance horse...
Nw for the fun part. This is Ava. She's a 7yo arab mare. Although she's small, she used to be a racehorse. Now we race (much slower) across mountain terrains for 50 miles or more in a day.
Our first ride this spring will be on Antelope Island - an island in the Great Salt Lake.
What animals have you had that start with A?
