Transcript of Unit 3

Monserrat Vásquez Unit 3 Comparative and Superlative We use the comparative adjectives, such as its name, buy two types of things. We use a comparative form +than.Ex: The cat is bigger than the bug. Comparative and Superlative Adverbs We use adverbs to describe verbs - they say how an action is or was performed. Ex: She smiled happily Comparative adverbs To compare adverbs, we use the same rules as we do when we compare adjectives. Whit short adverbs, we add er or r, and than after the adverbs. Ex: I was later for school, but my brother was later than me. Grammar "He ran faster" Comparative Grammar Superlative We use the superlative to compare one thing about a group of things, we always need add the article "the" before the superlative with +est. Ex: Mount Everest is the high-est mountain in the world. With longer adjectives (more the two syllables), we don't change the adjective -we put more in front of it. Ex: expensive - more( comparatives) expensive
- most (superlatives) expensive Extra! We can modify the comparison, by using much/far, a lot or a little / a bit. These words before the normal camparision. Ex: This film es much better than the book. Grammar 2) Most adverbs are formed by adjective +ly. If the adjective ends in le, we drop the e and add y. Ex: terrible-terribly. If the adjective ends in consonant +y, we change the y to i and add ly. Ex: easy- easily. 3) Some adverbs are irregular - they don't have an ly ending. Ex: good-well, fast- fast, hard-hard. Grammar 2) With longer adverbs, we use more (adverb) + than. 3) To compare the adverb well, we use better...than. To compare adverb far, we use further...than. Ex: Steve plays tennis better than me. The End.. We can use (not) as...as to compare things. Ex: Smyth isn't as fast as Bolt. Intensifiers (Not) as...as
