  • 1. The superlative of adjectives and adverbs
  • 2. SUPERIORITY ADJECTIVES 1. If the adjective is one syllable, you must add -est. For example small – the smallest; big – the biggest; nice – the nicest. 2 . If the adjective has two syllables, but ends in -y, you syllables must change the end to -iest. For example lucky – the luckiest; happy – the happiest.
  • 3. 3. With other English adjectives of two syllables and more, you can‘t change their endings. Instead, you should use the most + adjective. For example  handsome – the most handsome; beautiful – the most beautiful 4.
