2.4.1 Grammar Spot - Comparatives and superlatives

Comparatives

1. The elephant is bigger than the mouse. 

We use comparatives to compare two things. 
When the adjective has only one or two syllables, we make a comparative by adding  -er at the end of the adjective (big-bigger), followed by  than

2.  She is more beautiful than your sister. 

If the adjective has three or more syllables, we make the comparative with more + adjective + than.

 
 Superlatives 

1. This is the biggest cinema in the city. 
2. My sister is the most beautiful girl in the school. 

When an adjective has one or more syllables, we make the superlative with the + adjective+est. 
If the adjective has three or more syllables, the superlative is made with the most + adjective.
