Comparative or superlative
We add -est to one-syllable adjectives to make the superlative form .
eg cold¨ colder¨coldest.
If a one or two-syllable adjective ends in -y, we change the y to an i before adding -est .
If an adjective ends in -e, we just add -st.
If a one-syllable adjective ends in a vowel + one consonant, we double the final consonant before adding -est.
For most adjectives that have two syllables or more, we add most before the adjective.
eg expensive¨more expensive¨most expensive
Some adjectives are irregular.
