Well done, Dick. You got that nearly right. There is some discussion on the use of commas in cumulative adjectives but, in the main, if they are all of the same group you do not use commas. Take "nasty unpleasant little prick" for instance. I think that no comma is required between nasty and unpleasant, as they are cumulative, but maybe you should have put one between unpleasant and little. Of course they may not be adjectives at all as "prick" is more commonly a verb. As in "This injection is a nasty unpleasant little prick" where you would not use commas at all unless it was an introductory adverb.

But I think we are getting ahead of ourselves. I am pleased with your progress so far. Keep it up! :-)
