Comma use seems to be an area with some creative wiggle room, so I thought I'd ask around to see what others do. Do you always adhere to the rule of putting a comma between coordinate adjectives or do you skip them? Does it depend on the sentence, or do you favour consistency throughout a piece? I lean towards omission. I was taught early on to include them, but I find they confuse the sentence structure more often than not (e.g. on a quick read-through, one initially assumes they're separating one clause from another). However, my general preference is to use commas more sparsely than many do. For those who are like I was half an hour ago, and have no idea what coordinate adjectives are: Spoiler: Background Coordinate adjectives are consecutive adjectives that both describe the subsequent noun, e.g. 'trendy, young thing'. You can tell if they're coordinate by whether you can reverse the order and still make sense of the phrase ('young, trendy thing'), or by whether you can replace the comma with the word and ('trendy and young thing'). They stand in contrast to cumulative adjectives, where the first adjective modifies the second adjective rather than the subsequent term, e.g. 'dark blue blanket'. From what I gather, the rule is that coordinate adjectives need a comma in between, while cumulative adjectives should not have one.
