Grammar Box

Formation of Comparative adjectives:

There are two ways to form a comparative adjective:

short adjectives: add “-er” or “r” in the end

eg. small – smaller; late – later

long adjectives: add “more” before the adjective

eg. beautiful – more beautiful

Formation of Superlative Adjectives

Again, there are two ways to form a superlative adjective:

short adjectives: add “-est” or “st”

eg. small – smallest; late – latest

long adjectives: add “most” before the adjective

eg. beautiful – the most beautiful

IMPORTANT: We usually use ‘the’ before the superlative form of the adjective.

Practice:

1. In the table below write the comparative and superlative adjectives.

eg. dark – darker – darkest

Adjective Comparative Superlative
