Stanley Yelnats has bad luck which is all because of his...

'no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather'.

 

I love how HYPHENS are used here to create a funny compound adjective to describe Stanley's grandfather. Can you create your own COMPOUND ADJECTIVE using HYPHENS to describe someone or something?

Here are some examples of how hyphens can create compound adjectives:

  • never-to-be-forgotton
  • a far-too-chatty-individual
  • a two-year-old
  • a state-of-the-art design
