Transcript of Superlatives, Comparatives and Adjectives

Superlatives, Comparatives and Adjectives What did we do last class? What are comparatives and superlatives? What is an adjective? A describing word.
Example? Types of adjectives. Describe the difference between two things. Usain Bolt is the fastest person in the world. Usain Bolt is taller than Sam Teacher There are some rules for using superlatives and comparatives: 1. If the adjective is short, we add 'er' or 'est'.
For example:
Adjective – Soft
Comparative – Softer
Superlative – Softest 2. If the adjective is long we put more or most before the adjective.
For example:
Adjective – Expensive
Comparative – More expensive
Superlative – Most expensive 3. If the adjective ends in a ‘y’, change the ‘y’ to an ‘I’ and add er or est.
For example:
Adjective – Funny
Comparative – Funnier
Superlative – Funniest 4. However, there are some that do not follow these rules.
For example:
Adjective – Good
Comparative – Better
Superlative – Best With your partner, can you complete the adjective table? Dice game .. One person from each group will roll the dice twice.
