In this lesson, you will learn about irregular comparatives and superlatives that do not follow the standard inflection rules. These modifiers do not take -er to form the comparative or -est to form the superlative. You do not use the adverbs more or most either. Examples are given.
Most modifiers change their spelling when -er or -est is added. This applies to modifiers ending in e, y, and one-syllable modifiers with a short vowel sound. These inflectional endings change the base word and indicate degree or form. In today’s lesson, we will learn about the rules of spelling of comparatives and superlatives.
Most adjectives and adverbs have three degrees or forms: positive, comparative, and superlative. In today’s lesson, we will learn about the inflection of adjectives and adverbs and their degrees of form. Examples are given.
