44SOME RULES ABOUT FORMING COMPARATIVES AND SUPERLATIVES One syllable adjectives generally form the comparative by adding -er and the superlative by adding -est, e.g.:AdjectiveComparativeSuperlativeSoftSofterThe softestCheapCheaperThe cheapestSweetSweeterThe sweetestThinThinnerThe thinnest
45SPELLING RULESNote 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.
46TWO 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.:AdjectiveComparativesuperlativeLuckyluckierThe luckiestPrettyPrettierThe prettiestTidyTidierThe tidiest
47TWO 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.:AdjectiveComparativesuperlativeWorriedMore worriedThe most worriedBoringMore boringThe most boringCarefulMore carefulThe most carefulUselessMore uselessThe most useless
48THREE 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 unhappyAdjectiveComparativeSuperlativeDangerousMore dangerousThe most dangerousDifficultMore difficultThe most difficult
