comment Is it correct to place comma between successive adjectives?
Are there any (separate) rules requiring commas? Does any answer or text cover this?

comment Ambiguous (and maybe euphemistic) word or phrase for romantic partner
@Mari-LouA the reference to British culture is tongue in cheek, though not wholly - certain subsets I partly fit in tend not to be open to an extent which elicits comment from foreigners! But I'm sure everyone can imagine that there are some circumstances in which you don't want to shout about a new relationship from the rooftops to everyone - exes, parents, certain friendship groups, etc. (In my particular case this isn't about an introduction, but a reply to a Facebook comment which others will see, before the milestone of official Facebook relationship-setting.)

@user662852 Companion is probably the best suggestion so far, as the answers below don't really fit - you should write it in as one!

Yeah, that's an improvement to my title. I do indeed want an ambiguous term to apply to denote my girlfriend, which can have a light coating of insinuation but not absolutely drip with it. "Fuck buddy" definitely isn't what I'm going for ;)

@JohnLawler, not the most reputable example, but here's a fairly explicit usage with some explanation: helpingwritersbecomeauthors.com/on-the-nose-dialogue

Well, this prompted a bunch of interesting discussion and answers, though I ultimately accepted medica's because it was closest to the aesthetic context I was asking about.

@JohnLawler, I'm sure that's the phrase, I've seen it written by reputable critics.

Thanks, that gives me greater insight into painting, and seems fairly easily extensible to words/lyrics, dialogue, music, and plot.
