I was asked to do a post on comparing adjectives. So here goes.
Single syllable adjectives are a breeze. You just have to add -er. -est or -iest
Big, bigger, biggest
Small, smaller, smallest
And 3 or more syllables are also not a problem. You add more, most.
Beautiful, more beautiful, most beautiful
Interesting, more interesting, most interesting
It is the 2 syllable adjectives that are the pesky ones. If the adjective ends in Y we use -er, -est, or -iest.
Pretty, prettier, prettiest
Lucky, luckier, luckiest
(And note that we are dropping the Y and adding -iest)
But for other 2 syllable adjectives, we use more, most
Modern, more modern, most modern
Peaceful, more peaceful, most peaceful
And sorry. There is another confusing issue. People think that by using more it makes the adjective stronger. So for example, you will often hear more tasty. What do you think? Do you think more tasty feels stronger than tastier? Have fun next week practicing. And isn't the image below fun?
