The superlative is used to describe an
object that is at the top or bottom of an
object (the tallest, the smallest, the fastest,
the highest). It is used in sentences in
which we compare a subject with a group
of objects, etc.
His structure for making prayers is:
Name (subject) + verb + the +
adjective in superlative degree +
differences of comparative
form and superlative form
* A comparative adjective highlights the inferiority, equality or
superiority of one person or thing over another. * Instead, an
adjective "superlative" indicates that the subject possesses the
quality in the highest degree and above all others.
The superlative is always
preceded by the given
article: the fastest, the
tallest, the most intelligent.
the dog is the most
In the case of one-syllable adjectives,
we form the superlative by adding
-est at the end: tall - tallest.
Example: the building is the
tallest in the city
If the adjective has two syllables,
we can add -est or put most in front
of the adjective. In many cases, both
forms are used, but one is more
common than the other.
Example:the pencil is the most
useful for writing at school
If the adjective has three
syllables or more, we will form
the comparative adding most:
important - the most
Example: that suit is the
When the adjective
ends in consonant +
vowel + consonant, the
last consonant must be
repeated before adding
the ending: fat - fattest.
Example: John is the fattest
And if it ends in -y,
we must change it
to an i: happy -
