SOME RULES ABOUT FORMING COMPARATIVES AND SUPERLATIVES One syllable adjectives generally form the comparative by adding -er and the superlative by adding -est, e.g.: AdjectiveComparativeSuperlative SoftSofterThe softest CheapCheaperThe cheapest SweetSweeterThe sweetest ThinThinnerThe thinnest
SPELLING RULES Note that if a one syllable adjective ends in a single vowel letter followed by a single consonant letter, the consonant letter is doubled, e.g.: thin → thinner, big → biggest. If an adjective ends in -e, this is removed when adding - er/-est, e.g.: wide → wider/widest. If an adjective ends in a consonant followed by -y, -y is replaced by -i when adding -er/-est, e.g.: dry → drier/driest.
TWO SYLLABLE ADJECTIVES two syllable adjectives which end in -y usually form the comparative by adding -er and the superlative by adding -est, (note the change of -y to -i in the comparative/superlative) e.g.: AdjectiveComparativesuperlative LuckyluckierThe luckiest PrettyPrettier The prettiest TidyTidierThe tidiest
TWO SYLLABLE ADJECTIVES two syllable adjectives ending in -ed, -ing, - ful, or -less always form the comparative with more and the superlative with the most, e.g.: AdjectiveComparativesuperlative WorriedMore worriedThe most worried BoringMore boringThe most boring CarefulMore carefulThe most careful UselessMore uselessThe most useless
THREE SYLLABLE ADJECTIVES Adjectives which have three or more syllables always form the comparative and superlative with MORE and THE MOST, e.g.: The only exceptions are some three syllable adjectives which have been formed by adding the prefix -un to another adjective, especially those formed from an adjective ending in -y. These adjectives can form comparatives and superlatives by using more/most or adding -er/-est, e.g.: unhappy – unhappier – the unhappiest/ the most unhappy AdjectiveComparativeSuperlative DangerousMore dangerousThe most dangerous DifficultMore difficultThe most difficult
