  • This is a simple way to explain the grammar. For me personally I find it difficult language that is hard because I do not read as written, does not speak as we think is a bit complicated for me, but so far I think I'm understanding what he has explained.

Comparativesandsuperlativeseva Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Comparatives and superlatives
  • 2. SOME RULES ABOUT FORMING COMPARATIVES AND SUPERLATIVES
    • One syllable adjectives generally form the comparative by adding -er and the superlative by adding -est , e.g.:
    The thinnest Thinner Thin The shortest Shorter Short The cheapest Cheaper Cheap The tallest Taller Tall Superlative Comparative Adjective
  • 3. SPELLING RULES
    • Note that if a one syllable adjective ends in a single vowel letter followed by a single consonant letter, the consonant letter is doubled, e.g.: thin -> thinner, big -> biggest.
    • If an adjective ends in -e, this is removed when adding -er/-est, e.g.: wide -> wider/widest.
    • If an adjective ends in a consonant followed by -y, -y is replaced by -i when adding -er/-est, e.g.: dry -> drier/driest .
  • 4. THREE SYLLABLE ADJECTIVES
    • Adjectives which have three or more syllables always form the comparative and superlative with MORE and THE MOST , e.g .:
    Superlative Comparative Adjective The most difficult More difficult Difficult The most dangerous More dangerous Dangerous
