COMPARATIVE AND SUPERLATIVE ADJECTIVES
Comparatives and Superlatives are special forms of adjectives.
They are used to compare two or more things. Generally, comparatives are formed using -er and superlatives are formed using -est.
Comparatives are used to compare two things. You can use sentences with “than”, or you can use a conjunction like “but”.
Tom is taller than Kate.
Kateis tall, but Tom is taller.
Superlatives are used to compare more than two things. Superlative sentences usually use “the”, because there is only one superlative.
Peter is the tallest in the class.
Kate is tall, and Tom is taller, but Peter is the tallest.
