Transcript

  • 1. COMPARATIVE AND SUPERLATIVE ADJECTIVES
  • 2. Comparatives Comparatives are used to show the difference between two objects. Let’s say that I have two cars. I have a little Toyota and a big Ford. The Ford is big so we can say “the Ford is bigger than the Toyota”. Because the Toyota is small, we can say “The Toyota is smaller than the Ford”.
  • 3. • Rule 1. If an adjective has 1 syllable we add -er to the adjective. –small + er = smaller than –hard + er = harder than The ant is smaller than the hippo.
  • 4. • Rule 2. If a one syllable adjective ends with a consonant + a vowel + a consonant you must double the last consonant and then ad -er. big + er = bigger than fat + er = fatter than The elephant is fatter than the giraffe.
  • 5. • Rule 3. If an adjective ends in “y”, remove the “y” and add -ier. happy –y + ier = happier than funny –y + ier = funnier than The girl is happier than the duck.
  • 6. • Rule 4. If an adjective has two syllables or more then add the word “more” before the word. expensive + more = more expensive than satisfactory + more = more satisfactory than The butterfly is more beautiful than the frog.
  • 7. •Rule 5. There are a few exceptions. good = better than bad = worse than far = farther than
  • 8. •Remember, when using a comparative you must always follow it with the word “than”. The Toyota is smaller than the Ford. The Ford is bigger than the Toyota. The ant is smaller than the hippo. The elephant is fatter than the giraffe. The girl is happier than the duck. The butterfly is more beautiful than the frog.
  • 9. Complete the following sentences. Use the comparative form of the adjectives in brackets. 1.Tiny is (tall) than Sky. 2.Sky is (good) at basketball than Tiny. 3.Tiny is (fast) than Sky. 4.Sky is (popular) than Tiny. 5.Sky’s feet are (big) than Tiny’s feet.

  • 15. Superlatives Superlatives are used to show the difference between more than two objects. Let’s say that I have three cars. I have a little Toyota, a medium size Jeep and a big Ford. A superlative is used to show the differences that exist in the group. The Ford is big so we can say “the Ford is the biggest”. Because the Toyota is small, we can say “The Toyota is the smallest”.
  • 16. The ant is the smallest. • Rule 1. If an adjective has 1 syllable we add - est to the adjective. small + est = the smallest hard + est = the hardest
  • 17. The hippo is the fattest. • Rule 2. If a one syllable adjective ends with a consonant + a vowel + a consonant you must double the last consonant and add - est. big + est = the biggest fat + est = the fattest
  • 18. The elephant is the heaviest. • Rule 3. If an adjective ends with a “y”, remove the “y” and add -iest. happy –y + iest = the happiest funny –y + iest = the funniest
  • 19. The airplane is the most expensive. • Rule 4. If an adjective has two syllables or more add the word “most” before the word. expensive + most = the most expensive satisfactory + most = the most satisfactory
  • 20. • Rule 5. There are a few exceptions. good = the best bad = the worst far = the farthest
  • 21. • Remember, when using a superlative you must always precede it with the word “the”. The Toyota is the smallest. The Ford is the biggest. Brad Pitt is the most handsome. The airplane is the most expensive. Jim Carrey is the funniest.
  • 22. Complete the following sentences. Use the superlative form of the adjectives in brackets. 1.Al is (short). 2.Ed is (thin). 3.Al is wearing (colourful) clothes. 4.Ed is (tall). 5.Joe is (smart).
