Transcript of Comparative and Superlative Adjectives 2.3

Comparative and Superlative
Adjectives
Adjectives have three degrees of comparison:
positive
,
comparative
, and
superlative
.
Never use a double comparative or superlative.
more cheaper.....most cheapest
more better........most best

For adjectives with
three or more syllables

and the other
two syllable adjectives
, form the
comparative

by adding
more
or

less
to the positive and
most
or
least
to form the
superlative
.

When
than
is used to compare something with the rest of the class of things to which it belongs,
use the comparative form
.
Jake is
taller

than
the rest of the class.
