7 Objectives for the Day identify and apply rules in forming comparatives and superlatives of adjectives compare two or more things with the use of adjectives

8 Meet Al, Joe and Ed. Can you help me know them better with the use of adjectives? Think of adjectives that can describe them and use these adjectives in sentences.

9 What did we just do with the use of adjectives?
We compared Al, Joe, and Ed with the use descriptive words. Remember that adjectives can also be used in comparing nouns such as people, things, events, things, and animals.

10 In comparing with adjectives, it is important to consider the number of nouns being compared. We usually use the words between and among when comparing. POSITIVE COMPARATIVE SUPERLATIVE simplest form - used to compare two things/ persons -used to compare three or more things/ persons

11 Rules in Forming Comparative and Superlative Adjectives
A. One to two syllable adjectives 1. Add –er for the comparative form (when comparing 2 nouns) and –est for the superlative (when comparing 3 or more nouns). Examples: Isabel is taller than Bella. Cai is the tallest of all the students. Louis is older than Miguel. Peter is the oldest among the three.

12 Rules in Forming Comparative and Superlative Adjectives
B. Three or more syllable adjectives For adjectives with three syllables or more, form the comparative with more/less and the superlative with most/least. Examples: Women are more intelligent than men. Mia is the most intelligent person I've ever met.

13 C. Special Adjectives: Irregular adjectives
Comparative Form Superlative Form good better best bad worse worst far farther farthest little less least many more most Examples: My penmanship is worse than yours. My brother’s penmanship is the worst kind of writing I’ve ever seen.
