    Comparative of superiority

    Comparative adjectives:
    Comparative adjectives are used in order to compare between two objects or two individuals.

    ➡️ Short adjectives:
    we add -er to a short adjective.(Short adjective) -er + than

    ◼️ My sister is shorter than me.  (Adjective + ER THAN)
    ◼️ Warm ===> warmer◼️ Young ===> younger.

    When the adjective ends with a consonant preceded by a vowel, we double the last consonant.Ex : Big ==>Bigger

    ➡️ Long adjectives:
    We add more when using long adjectives. More + (long adjective) + than 

    Example: Lydia is more intelligent than Sam. Exciting ==> more exciting. Expensive ==> more expensive 

    When the adjective ends in y, the y turns into i.

    Examples: : Easy ===>easier Heavy ===>heavier

    ➡️ Irregular comparative forms:

    The exceptions:  bad ==> worse.

    good => better,

    far => farther/further (different meanings test),

    little ==> less. much ==> more / many


    Exercise: Find the comparative form. Don't forget "than".
