Superlatives - adjectives
To the lesson about Comparative Adjectives here it is : test
Today we shall learn about Superlative Adjectives.
A superlative is mostly used to compare someone or something to everyone or everything.
In other words, a superlative is used to compare an object or objects with all the other objects. (This applies to people too.)
-My bird is the smallest one I have ever seen. (small)
-My bird is the most interesting one around. (interesting)
There are two rules you must follow to be able to correctly spell superlative adjectives.
For one syllable words you must add:
The word "the" before the verb and add -est to the end of the adjective. (The + -est)
Now there are some exceptions to this particular rule:
-My dog can do tricks, it's the best. (good)
-My idea was the worst. (bad)
For words with two or more syllables you must add:
The word "the most" or "the least" before the adjective and then add the adjective (the most or the least + adj).
-You are the most intelligent man I have ever known. (intelligent)
-He is the most interesting person I have ever known. (interesting)
In this exercise, you must correctly spell the superlative adjective in parentheses using the two rules explained above.
Attention : Watch out for irregular adjectives!
