Comparative & Superlative Adjectives

Recognize the comparative and superlative forms of adjectives


Comparatives and superlatives are special forms of adjectives that are used to compare more than one nouns. Many adjectives use the suffix -er when used as a comparative, and the suffix -est when used a superlative. Most of the rest do not change form, but instead use more or most before the adjective. Still others have irregular forms. You can select from any of these three types with the options on the form.
