Comparison of Adjectives

REGULAR COMPARISON
Most one- syllable modifiers form the comparative degree by adding –er and the superlative degree by adding –est.

Example: Positive- hot Comparative- hotter Superlative- hottest

TWO- SYLLABLE MODIFIERS
The comparative degree is formed either by adding –er or by using more. The superlative degree is formed either by adding –est or using most. Some two-syllable modifiers can form comparisons either way.

EXAMPLES:
POSITIVE          COMPARATIVE          SUPERLATIVE
often                  more often                  most often
funny                 funnier                         funniest
funny                 more funny                  most funny
THREE-SYLLABLE MODIFIER

Examples:
POSITIVE                     COMPARATIVE                        SUPERLATIVE
