Comparatives
  • Short adjectives
  • -Adjectives of just one syllable form
    the comparative by adding "-er"
  • Bright brighter
  • Clear clearer
  • Fast faster
  • -If a one syllable adjective ends in "e", simply
    add "r"
  • Nice nicer
  • Fine finer
  • Ripe riper
  • -For some adjectives, it is necessary to double
    the last letter before adding "-er".
  • Big bigger
  • Slim slimmer
  • Flat flatter

  • -If the adjective has got two syllables and
    finish with -y we said that it is short. And we
    change -y for i and we add er.
  • Happy happier
  • Funny funnier
  • Easy easier
  • -Adjectives of two syllables are more
    complicated. Most adjectives of two syllables
    form the comparative with "more"
  • Famous more famous
  • Thankful  more thankful
  • Boring more boring
  • Faithless  more faithless

  • Long adjectives
  • -All adjectives of three or more syllables form
    the comparative with "more ".

  • In addition, there are some (common)
    irregular comparative adjectives

  • Ill worse
  • Old older or elder

  • De superioridad.
  • -we use more than in longs and add er than in
    shorts

  • l. Shoes are more expensive than sandals.
  • De igualdad.
  • - we use as adjective as
  • John is as tall as you.
  • it doesnt matter if the adjective is short or
    long
  • De inferioridad.
  • we use less adjective than.

    adjective by adding est.

    superlative with the most.
