remove text node
You have not said what is your desired output.. But
just guessing, you need the output to be exactly same
as input, except you want "to remove the leading space
from in front of the comma that sits between the
descriptiveWord nodes".

Probably you need an identity template.. And a
template to modify the text node. Please note the 2nd
template. It matches a text node which contains a
comma, and whose immediate preceding & immediate
following sibling nodes are descriptiveWord.

<?xml version="1.0"?> 
 <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" /> 

 <xsl:template match="@* | node()">
   <xsl:apply-templates select="@* | node()" />
= 'descriptiveWord'][name(following-sibling::*[1]) =
select="concat(substring-before(.,','),',')" />
