Comparative Adjectives
My name is Lily Cardoso.
Objective
To analyze the use of comparative adjectives.
To use short and long comparatives in sentences.
Comparative adjectives are used to compare two things.
1. Susy is taller than Claire.
2. Claire is more intelligent than Susy.
Comparatives are formed by adding 'er' to short adjectives.

If it's a long adjective, simply write 'more' or 'less' in front of the adjective.

more

less
comfortable

When a short adjective ends in consonant like 'big' or 'thin', double the consonant and add 'er' to get 'bigger' or 'thinner'.
big
ger
thin
ner

Adjectives ending in 'y' like 'healthy' or 'wealthy' you take off the 'y' and add 'ier' to get 'healthier' or 'wealthier'.

Examples:

1. Our school is bigger than their school.

2. Yesterday was hotter than today.
Examples:
