What are Comparative Adjectives?
Comparative adjectives are a type of adjective that is used to compare two nouns or pronouns. They are used to show the difference in degree or quality between two things, people, or ideas. In English grammar, comparative adjectives are formed by adding “-er” to the end of the adjective or by using the words “more” or “less” before the adjective.
- She is taller than her sister. (taller is the comparative form of the adjective “tall”)
- This book is more interesting than that one. (more interesting is the comparative form of the adjective “interesting”)
Comparative adjectives can also be used with “than” to indicate the noun or pronoun being compared. In this case, the noun or pronoun being compared is placed after “than.”
- He is smarter than his brother.
- This car is faster than that one.
It is important to note that some adjectives have irregular comparative forms, such as “good” (better) and “bad” (worse).
