Comparative and superlative of adjectives An adjective is a word that modifies a noun. An adverb is a word that modifies a verb, an adjective or another adverb. Adjectives and adverbs describe other words (things). Both have two additional forms: A comparative form which compares two things, and a superlative form which compares three or more things. The following are examples of the rule mentioned earlier (using "big" as the adjective). Comparative: The first house is bigger than the second (comparison of two objects) Superlative: The first house is the biggest among the three (comparison of more than two objects) The tricky part is to learn how to form the comparatives and superlatives of the adjectives.

Crafting Power Sentences This post is about a chart I created with my friends over a three day period. It was really review for us, so the lessons were sort of quick hits. We did a section of the chart, they practiced in their writer's notebook with a quick share. My goal was just to review some areas in writing and grammar that I've seen they need a little reminding about. This is what the chart looked like at the end of day three: As you can see, it's a busy chart. Day 1 Learning Goal: Using more descriptive verbs that relate mood This was the chart at the start of the lesson. To practice, my friends then worked with a partner for a minute or two to brainstorm their own verb choice for the same sentence and write it in their writer's notebook. Modifications: This could be the extent of your entire chart. Day 2 Learning Goal: Using adjectives or more descriptive phrases to relate mood and stronger visual images Note: I'm a little embarrassed! Moving on. . .

English Grammar Explanations - Comparative/superlative Comparative is the name for the grammar used when comparing two things. The two basic ways to compare are using as .. as or than. Examples of each are shown below: She's twice as old as her sister. Note: In each of the example sentences above, the comparative form of the adjective is shown. When comparing with as .. as, the adjective does not change. 1-syllable adjectives: add -er to the adjective My sister is much taller than me. Note: If the word ends: consonant-vowel-consonant, then the last consonant is usually doubled in the comparative. 2-syllable adjectives ending in -y: change the -y to -ier She's looking happier today.This grammar topic is easier than the last one.Why is everyone else luckier than me? Beware: Do not confuse adjectives and adverbs. 2-syllable adverbs ending in -y must be compared with the word more. Other 2-syllable adjectives: use more with the unchanged adjective Note: The comparative of some shorter 2-syllable adjectives can be formed with -er.
