Welcome to class!
In today’s class, we will be talking about the identification of comparative forms of adjectives. Enjoy the class!
Identification of comparative forms of adjectives
Comparative adjectives are used to compare one noun to another noun. In these instances, only two items are being compared. For example, someone might say that “the bluebird is angrier than the robin.”
An initial adjective (also called a positive adjective) on its own describes a noun. Take, for example, “He’s tall.” The comparative adjectives in the printable below show how you can make comparisons easily between two entities by adding -er for a comparative adjective: “He’s taller than she is.”
Degrees of Comparison
It’s wise to review the degrees of comparison examples with your students. In the examples above, it’s clear there are varying degrees of comparison between new, newer, and newest.
Don’t forget you can also make comparisons between two or more items with the words “more” and “most.” For example, “She is more active than he is” offers a lesser degree of comparison than “She is the most active person in the entire household.”
Comparisons can also be made in the opposite direction with “less” and “least.” The same principle applies in the examples below. You can compare two things in the comparative form.
Guided informal letter: a letter to a brother on a chosen topic
