COMPARISON We use the comparative and superlative form to compare and contrast different objects in English. The comparative form is used to show the difference between two objects. While we use the superlative form when we speak about three or more objects to show which object is the most of something. There are some rules to help you make comparisons in English. 1. If the adjective (describing word) is one syllable, you can add er. For example: small smaller, big bigger, nice nicer. 2. If the adjective has two syllables, but end in y, you can change the end to ier. For example: lucky luckier, happy happier. 3. If other adjectives have two syllables and more, you cannot change their endings. Instead, you should use more + adjective. For example: handsome more handsome, beautiful more beautiful. 4. When you compare two things, use than. For example: She is younger than me The exercise is more difficult than the last one 5. When you want to say something is similar, use as as. For example: She is as tall as her brother. It is as nice today as it was yesterday. 6. When you want to say one thing is less than another, you can either use less than or not as as For example: This program is less interesting than I thought or This program is not as interesting as I thought. 7. Remember that some adjectives are irregular and change form when you make comparisons. For example: good better, bad worse, far farther. These are some rules to help you to make superlative in English.



If the adjective is one syllable, you can place the before the adjective and add -est to and of the adjective. For example: cheap the cheapest, hot the hottest.


If the adjective is two, three or more syllable adjectives, you should place the most before the adjective. For example: interesting the most interesting, difficult the most difficult.


If the adjective is two syllable adjectives ending in y, you can put the before the adjective and remove the y from the adjective and add -iest. For example: happy happiest, funny funniest.


Remember that some adjectives are irregular and change form when you make superlative. For example: good better the best, bad worse the worst.

Exercise 20 Look the data below and then complete the following paragraph with the correct adjectives in degrees of comparisons based on the table below! The adjectives below can help you: Young Old Name : Ratih Age : 24 years old short tall Name : Riko Age : 19 years old heavy light Name : Listy Age : 24 years old
