Comparative and Superlative Adjectives


  • A comparative adjective compares two people, things, or ideas.
  • Form comparative adjectives by adding -er to most one-syllable and some two-syllable adjectives. 
  • A superlative adjective compares more than two things. 
  • The superlative is usually formed by adding-est
  • If an adjective ends in a consonant and y, change the y to i before adding -er or -est
  • If an adjective ends in e, drop the e before adding -er or -est
  • If an adjective has a single vowel before a final consonant, double the final consonant before adding -er or -est.

Example

  • Ted is a faster runner than Cal. Reg is the thinnest boy on the team.
