COMPARATIVES & SUPERLATIVES.- Grammar Tips

Los comparative adjectives se utilizan para comparar una determinada característica o cualidad entre dos o más cosas, animales o personas.

Los superlative adjectives expresan el grado máximo de una característica de un elemento con respecto a otros de su mismo grupo o condición.

En los adjetivos de una sílaba generalmente se añade la terminación final -er en los comparativos. En cuanto a los superlativos, se añade el artículo the delante del adjetivo y la terminación -est detrás.

En los adjetivos de dos sílabas para construir el comparativo se añade mayoritariamente la partícula more delante sin alterar el adjetivo, aunque en algunos casos también se les puede añadir la terminación -er, aunque es menos frecuente. Para formar el superlativo, en cambio, se añade la partícula the most delante sin alterar el adjetivo, o bien se puede añadir el artículo the delante del adjetivo y la terminación -est detrás.

Los comparative adjectives son aquellos que comparan dos elementos mientras que los superlative adjectives expresan el grado máximo de una característica.
