    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: 

    -Irregular adjectives


    -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!

    Good luck!
