Comparative Adjectives (#628)
Transcript of Comparative Adjectives (#628)
My name is Lily Cardoso.
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.
When a short adjective ends in consonant like 'big' or 'thin', double the consonant and add 'er' to get 'bigger' or 'thinner'.
Adjectives ending in 'y' like 'healthy' or 'wealthy' you take off the 'y' and add 'ier' to get 'healthier' or 'wealthier'.
1. Our school is bigger than their school.
2. Yesterday was hotter than today.
1. My grandmother is healthier than my grandfather.
2. This box is heavier than the other one.
For long adjectives of two syllables or more like 'modern' or 'interesting', add 'more' before the adjective to get 'more modern' or 'more interesting'.
