list of comparative and superlative adjectives

What are Comparative and Superlative Adjectives? Comparative adjectives are used to compare two things, while superlative adjectives are used to compare three or more things. Generally, comparative adjectives are formed by adding -er to the base word, and superlative adjectives are formed by adding -est.

For example:

  • tall → taller → tallest
  • short → shorter → shortest

However, some adjectives have irregular comparative and superlative forms. For example:

  • good → better → best
  • bad → worse → worst

Many adjectives can be used in both the comparative and superlative forms, depending on what you are comparing. For example:

  • The new computer is faster than the old one. (comparative)
  • The new computer is the fastest one I’ve ever seen. (superlative)
  • She’s a better writer than he is. (comparative)
  • She’s the best writer I know. (superlative)
