A PRESENTATION
BY GROUP 2:
MONTONERI ALESSANDRO
TERENZI LUCA
AMICI MATTEO
And last but not
least..
TOMASSI JACOPO
STARTING WITH..
COMPARATIVES
&
SUPERLATIVES
We use comparatives to
compare (obviously) something to
something else
FOR EXAMPLE:
Jack is
faster than
John
To build a comparative form we use:
A -er form of an Adjective + than
IF
We have a one-syllab adjective
Like
fast, nice, etc.
But we have some particular cases
FOR EXAMPLE
We have exceptions, like
"good"
and
"bad"
These adjectives are used with an
irregular -er form
GOOD
becomes

BETTER
and
BAD

becomes

WORSE
But we can also find
An adjective ending
with the letter "Y"
In that case, simply, the "Y" becomes an "I" and you can add the -er suffix without any
problems
As Example we take
HAPPY
Happy's -er form is:
HAPPIER
So the "Y" in HAPP
Y
simply "turned"
into a "I" that we see in HAPP
I
ER
Then we have
the adjectives
composed by more than one syllab
WE ALSO HAVE
FAR
Which becomes
FURTHER
FAR - FURTHER
With those we use:
MORE
+
the adjective
+
THAN
LIKE
MORE

DIFFICULT
LESS
INTELLIGENT
NOW WITH SUPERLATIVES..
We use Superlatives if we are
comparing something to
everything of that kind or to
everything in the group of that thing
To build a superlative form we use:
THE

+
-est form of an Adjective
IF
We have a one-syllab adjective
So we'll have a form like this one:
I'm
THE

NICEST
But here again we find the same particular cases:
GOOD
that becomes
(the) BEST
BAD
that becomes
(the) WORST
and
FAR
that becomes
(the) FURTHEST
And once again we have the "Y" ending adjectives
So again the "Y" turns into an "I" and we find a form like this:
I'm

THE

HAPP
I
EST

FOR EXAMPLE:
He is
the fastest

in the class
Then if we have more than one syllab
We will use this form:
THE MOST
+

Adjective
LIKE:
This is
the most difficult
thing ever.
Luckily enough here we don't have any exceptions or particular cases.
This is
the least difficult
thing ever.
or
THE LEAST
+ Adjective
or
LESS
+
the adjective
+
THAN
Then, finishing with comparatives,
we can find a comparison of equality.
To express this we find:
AS
+
adjective
+
AS
FOR EXAMPLE
You're
as smart as
Luigi
Now let's take a look at..
-ing and -ed Adjectives
We use -ing adjectives when something about what we are describing, reflects on the others
For example:
This chair is
relaxing
We translate the -ing adjectives in italian with the present participle, in this case it is "Rilassante"
We use -ed adjectives, when we are talking about something that is directly "affecting" what we are describing.
FOR EXAMPLE:
When I woke up I felt
tired.
We translate the -ed adjectives with the italian adjective like in this case we have "stanco" or in some cases with the past participle.
THE END
when we express a sort of positivity
OR
Less + adjective + than
when we express a sort of negativity
EXAMPLES:
I am
faster than
you
He is
less strong
than you
But if we find this form with a negative verb it gets another meaning:
You
aren't

as tall as

him
In this case it becomes a sort of "
negative expression
" it gets the same meaning as "
less than
"
(Positivity)
THE
+
LEAST
+
Adjective
(Negativity)
