Comparatives

Superlatives

Comparatives are used to compare two things or two people:


Alan is taller than John.

Superlatives are used to compare more than two things or two people. Superlative sentences usually use 'the':


Alan is the most intelligent.

 

 

 Forming  comparatives and superlatives

 

We use comparatives to compare two things or two people. (e.g She is taller than her husband.)

 

Superlatives are used, however, to compare to show the difference between more than two things or more than two people. (e.g Paris is the biggest city in France)

 

The rules to form comparatives and superlatives:

 

1. One syllable adjective ending in a silent 'e' — nice

Comparative — add 'r' — nicer

 

Superlative — add 'st' — nicest

 

2. One syllable adjective ending in one vowel and one consonant — big

Comparative — the consonant is doubled and 'er' is added —bigger

 

Superlative — the consonant is doubled and 'est' is added—biggest

 

3. One syllable adjective ending in more than one consonant or more than a vowel — high, cheap

Comparative — 'er' is added — higher, cheaper

 

Superlative — 'est is added — highest, cheapest

 

4. A two syllable adjective ending in 'y' — happy

Comparative — 'y' becomes 'i' and 'er' is added — happier

 

Superlative — 'y' becomes 'i' and 'est' is added — happiest

 

Examples:

 

The Nile River is longer and more famous than the Thames.

Egypt is much hotter than Sweden.

Everest is the highest mountain in the world.

 

This is one of the most exciting films I have ever seen.
