    Comparatives and Superlatives.

    We use the comparative to compare one person or thing with another. We use the superlative to compare one person or thing with more than one person or thing of the same group. We often use than after a comparative and the before a superlative. She is younger than me. She’s the youngest person in the room.

    Formation of comparatives and superlatives from adjectives and adverbs:

    1. with one-syllable adjectives, we add -(e)r to form the comparative and -(e)st to form the superlative.

    large - larger - largest

    Note: for one-syllable adjectives ending in a vowel + a consonant, we double the consonant.

    thin - thinner - thinnest

    1. with two-syllable adjectives ending in -ly, -y, -w, we also add -er / -est. lively - livelier - liveliest

    Note: for adjectives ending in a consonant + y, we replace the -y with an -i. tidy — tidier - tidiest

    1. with other two-syllable adjectives or adjectives with more than two syllables, comparatives and superlatives are formed with more/most. comfortable - more comfortable - most comfortable
    2. with adverbs that have the same form as their adjectives, we add -er/-est. hard - harder – hardest

    These include: hard, fast, free, high, low, deep, early, late, long, near, straight, right, wrong. Also hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.

    e.g. The lake is deep, (adjective)

    They went deep into the forest, (adverb)

    These biscuits are very hard, (adjective)

    He tried hard in order to succeed, (adverb)

    ‘Bella Donna’ is a weekly magazine, (adjective)

    It comes out weekly, (adverb)

    ► The adverbs below have two forms, each with a different meaning:

    1. The treasure was buried deep underground. (= a long way down)

    He is deeply in love with her. (= very)

    1. The hotel guests can use the swimming pool free. (= without payment)

    The animals in the safari park can roam freely. (= without limit or restriction.)

    He is a highly respected doctor. (= very much)

    1. She arrived late for the meeting. (= not early)

    He hasn’t been feeling well lately. (= recently)

    1. Which of his songs do you like most? (= superlative of much)

    I’m mostly interested in modern art. (= mainly)

    1. As he came near, I realised that something was wrong. (= close)

    She nearly fainted when she heard the news.

    (= almost)

    1. He is a pretty strange man. (= rather)

    The bridesmaids were prettily dressed in pink. (= in a pretty way)

    1. He is working hard these days. (= with a lot of effort) They hardly go anywhere now that they have children. (= almost never)

    Note: Hardly has a negative meaning and is often used with: any, anyone, anywhere, anything and ever.
