USING IRREGULAR ADJECTIVES IN MAKING
COMPARISONS
132
Good day Learner!
How are you today?
You have already learned how to use descriptive words in your
previous modules. Can you still remember how to compare regular
adjectives? Yes, by adding er and est to the adjectives.
This module will help you learn how to compare irregular
adjectives.
A. Choose the correct form of adjectives. Do this in your notebook.
1. Solomon is the ______________ king of all.
2. Soya milk is _______________ than chocolate.
3. Mayon Volcano is the _______________ volcano for me.
To the Learner
Let’s Try This
Let’s Learn This
wise wiser wisest
healthy healthier healthiest
majestic more majestic most majestic
133
4. My father is an _______________ man.
5. I was the ______________ when my friend graduated with honors.
Finished?
Are your answers like these? (wisest, healthier, most majestic,
industrious, happiest)
Let’s have another test.
B. Cross out the correct form of the adjective. Do this in your
notebook.
1. This place is (good, better, best) than their place.
2. We had a (bad, worse, worst) weather yesterday.
3. I think my mother is the (good, better, best) cook in the whole
world.
4. This month is the (bad, worse, worst) time of the year.
5. She served (good, better, best) roasted chicken on our plate.
Finished?
Look at the correct answers.
1. better
2. bad
3. best
4. worst
5. good
Are your answers the same with the given answers?
industrious more industrious most industrious
happy happier happiest
134
If your answers are not all correct, don’t worry, this module will
help you learn how to use these adjectives in making comparisons.
As a review, just remember that most adjectives form their
comparative degree by adding –er to the one-syllable adjectives and by
adding more to other adjectives and their superlative degree by adding
–est to one-syllable adjectives and by adding most or least to other
adjectives.
Example: long longer longest
delicious more delicious most delicious
Read the paragraph. Take note of the underlined adjectives.
Japan spends much money for food. The Philippines spends more
than it does. The United States spends the most of the three countries.
Answer the following questions.
1. How many countries are compared in the paragraph?
2. What is the word used to compare Japan and the Philippines?
3. In comparing the three countries, what is the word used?
4. Which country spends the least money for food?
Read the sentences again.
1. Japan spends much money for food.
2. The Philippines spends more than Japan does.
3. The United States spends the most of the three countries.
The adjective in sentence 1 describes only one country. It is in the
positive degree.
Let’s Study This
135
The degree in sentence 2 compares two countries: Japan and
Philippines. It is in the comparative degree.
The adjective most in sentence 3 compares three countries. It is
in the superlative degree.
- What kind of adjectives are much, more and most?
Much, more and most are irregular adjectives. They form their
comparative and superlative forms in a totally different way – by
changing the spelling of the word or by changing the entire word.
Study the chart.
Positive Comparative Superlative
good
little
bad
many
much
ill
better
less
worse
more
more
worse
best
least
worst
most
most
worst
Give the correct degree of comparison for each adjective in the
following sentences. The first one is done for you.
1. Mrs. Reyes is a (good) good teacher in English.
Start here.
2. I would never forget the (good) __________ meal I have ever had.
3. A (good) __________ child is an asset to the family.
4. A (bad) __________ cold will turn __________ when not checked at
once.
5. We have (good) __________ homes today than we used to.
6. Merchants need (much) __________ capital.
Let’s Do This
136
What are irregular adjectives?
How do they form their comparative and superlative
forms?
Irregular adjectives are adjectives which form their
comparative and superlative forms in a totally different way –
by changing the spelling of the word or by changing the entire
word.
Tell what degree of comparison are the underlined adjectives.
Write your answers on a sheet of paper. (positive, comparative,
superlative)
______________ 1. An experienced basketball player has less errors than
a rookie.
______________ 2. Dading was the worst typhoon I ever saw.
______________ 3. Red watermelons are good but
______________ 4. yellow ones are better.
