    It was a bright beautiful sunny day.

    My suggestion: why not consider the underlined part as a notional unit, which is defined by "bright" ? I think we could.

    Every English teacher I've ever known would mark this wrong. :) At the least, there needs to be a comma between "bright" and "beautiful." I might write "a beautiful sunny day" without commas, but three adjectives seems to trip the limit for me, both intonationally and prescriptively. :)
