    Forms of Adjectives


    An adjective is a word that describes or qualifies a noun or a pronoun.

     

     

    Adjectives are used in comparing things and persons according to weight, size, height, distance, shape or quality.

    To compare things and persons accurately, forms of adjectives are in three (3) degrees. These are:

    -> Positive degree - which describes one noun or pronoun; e.g old, big, small, long.

    -> Comparative degree (+ -er) - which compares only two nouns or pronouns; e.g older, bigger, smaller, longer.

    -> Superlative degree (+ -est) - which compares more than two nouns or pronouns; e.g oldest, biggest, smallest, longest.



    Now, let us use an example above in sentences:

    John is a tall boy. George is taller than John. Max is the tallest of the boys.

    Some adjectives use 'more' (comparative) or 'most' (superlative) for comparison;

    e.g:Sonali is beautiful. Andrea is more beautiful than Sonali. Raquel is the most beautiful of all.

    However, irregular adjectives change forms when used to compare;

    e.g:

    well/good better best

    bad worse worst

    many more most

    little less least
