    Comparatives and superlatives


    An adjective is a word that describes or clarifies a noun.

     

     

    It can be used to compare two nouns or to express the high quality of one above all the others.

    There are short adjectives and long ones.

    Here are some examples for the comparative forms.

    For the short adjectives:

    I am nicer than Emily.

    France is bigger than Israel.

    So you see that all you do is add er at the end of the adjective

    Now the superlative form:

    I am the nicest man.

    France is the biggest country.

    In this case, you add -st or -est at the end of the adjective.

     

    Now for the comparative of long adjectives:

    English is more important than French.

    Engineering is more beneficial than philosophy.

    Here you use more + adjective + than

    For the superlative form for long adjectives, you only add "the most"

    She is the most important person in the family.
