Adjective As Connector

When you use adjectives more than one to describe someone or something,
you transform the adjectives into te-from before the last one.

Example:

Sasaki-san is tall and big.
Sasaki-san wa takakute ooki desu.

My car is convenient and fast.
Watashino kuruma wa benride hayai desu.

Te-form of i-adjectives: i becomes kute like Akai, Akakute

Te-form of na-adjectives: drop na and add de like Himana, Himade

Te-from of te imasu (describe a resultant state): drop imasu add ite

 Exampe: Someone is married. Kekkon shite imasu, Kekkon shite ite

Nouns as desriptions like rich (Kanemochi), lazy(Namakemono),
            hard worker(Hatarakimono), hard worker & never give-up
            type(Ganbariya): just add de like Kanemochi de Namakemono

Example:

Tanaka-san wa Kent ni sunde ite * se ga takakute atamaga yokute shinsetsu desu.
(Tanaka-san lives in Kent and tall and smart and kind.)

* se ga takai = someone is tall
   se ga hikui = someone is short
   But when you describe someone's legs are long then you must say
   ashi ga nagai = someone's legs are long
   ashi ga mijikai = someone's legs are short
