    Comparative or superlative

    We add -est to one-syllable adjectives to make the superlative form .

    eg cold¨ colder¨coldest.


    If a one or two-syllable adjective ends in -y, we change the y to an i before adding -est .

    eg sunny¨sunnier¨sunniest


    If an adjective ends in -e, we just add -st.

    eg large¨larger¨largest


    If a one-syllable adjective ends in a vowel + one consonant, we double the final consonant before adding -est.

    eg wet¨wetter¨wettest


    For most adjectives that have two syllables or more, we add most before the adjective.

    eg expensive¨more expensive¨most expensive


    Some adjectives are irregular.

    eg bad¨worse¨worst,
