Some more transformation is required to use multiple adjectives in a sentence. Actually, it is under the rule for compounding sentences where て-form plays a significant role. Nevertheless, this form will be discussed in details later. For now, please apply the transformations below for all adjectives before the last one.

て-form is used for connecting ideas that are positively related. も can be added for negation. All adjectives before the last one are subject to be transformed.
