Comparatives - adjectives
Today we shall learn about Comparative Adjectives:
So, a comparative is mainly used to compare something or someone with something or someone.
In other words, it is used to compare an object or objects with another one. (It can be a person or people too).
My cat is uglier than your horse. (ugly)
A cow is more dangerous than a donkey. (dangerous)
There are two rules you must follow to correctly spell the comparative adjectives.
For one syllable words you must add:
-er to the end of the adjective and add the word "than" after it. (-er+than)
Now there are some exceptions:
-My dog can do tricks, it's better than yours. (good)
-My idea was worse than yours. (bad)
For words with two or more syllables you must add:
The word "MORE" or "LESS" before the adjective and then add the word "than" after the adjective (more or less + adj + than).
-You are more intelligent than my brother. (intelligent)
-I am more interesting than your cellphone. (interesting)
In this exercise, you must correctly spell the comparative adjective in parentheses using the two rules explained above.
