Comparing Adjectives: -er & -est

Use comparatives and superlative forms with -er and -est

Comparative adjectives are used to compare two things. Most adjectives can be used to compare by adding -er to the end. If the word ends with a -y, then drop it and add -ier. Superlative adjectives are used to compare three or more things. Instead of ending them with -er or -ier, use -est or -iest.

The exercises in this worksheet do not involve adjectives that use more or most, only those that need to be modified.
