    a wild running horse

    Is 'a wild running horse'

    a-a horse that is running wild
    or
    b-a wild horse that is running?

    I think for 'b' one should use 'a running wild horse'.


    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: a wild running horse

    a wild, running horse
    two adjectives need a comma when describing one noun or a hyphen: a wild-running horse
