Comparatives: Equality, Superiority and Inferiority
Transcript of Comparatives: Equality, Superiority and Inferiority
WHEN WE TALK ABOUT TWO THINGS, WE CAN "COMPARE" THEM. WE CAN SEE IF THEY ARE THE SAME OR DIFFERENT. WE CAN USE COMPARATIVE ADJECTIVES TO DESCRIBE THE DIFFERENCES.
Ex: Anderson is TALLER than Vitor
We have three types of Comparative Adjectives:
Adjective + than
One-syllable adjectives: add -ER
Ex: Cheap / CheapER
One-syllable adjectives ending in "E": add - R
Ex: Nice / NiceR
One-syllable adjectives ending in Consonant - Vowel - Consant (CVC): double consonant + add ER.
Ex: Hot / Hotter
One- or two-syllable adjectives ending in Consonant + "Y": Replace "Y" with "IER"
Ex: HappY / HappIER
Two- or more syllable adjectives: more + adjective
Ex: famous / MORE + famous
Less + Adjective + Than
Ex: Today is less hot than yesterday
As + Adjective + As
Ex: Today is as hot as yesterday
Don't follow the rules
Good - Better
Bad - Worse
Far - Farther / Further
