Learn Comparative and Superlative Adjective

Table of Contents

An adjective is a word that describes a noun. It gives us more information about a person, place, thing, animal, or idea. Examples of adjectives are short, beautiful, and amazing.

In English, the adjective is usually placed before the noun. For example:

  • They live in a small house.
  • We sat on the warm beach.
  • He bought a yellow car.

However, in some cases, the adjective is placed after the noun. This happens when the sentence uses the verb “to be”.

  • This show is wonderful.
  • English is difficult.
  • Your dog is loving.

COMPARATIVE ADJECTIVES compare two people, places, or things.

SUPERLATIVE ADJECTIVES compare three or more people, places, or things.

The word “than” is often used after the comparative form.
