REGULAR COMPARISON

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:

funny                           funnier                                    funniest
funny                           more funny                             most funny

Examples:
POSITIVE                     COMPARATIVE                        SUPERLATIVE
