ENGLISH ADJECTIVES

Comparative form of Adjectives

When we compare things, people or even ideas we look at what makes them different from each other.

Comparative adjectives are used to show what quality one thing has more or less than the other. They normally come before any other adjectives.

Tip – It’s a good idea to learn opposites (antonyms) when learning adjectives.

For example:

TALL / SHORT

The man on the left is taller than the man on the right.
The man on the right is shorter than the man on the left.

Note – Have you noticed that when we are comparing two things like this we put than between the adjective and the thing being compared.

FAST / SLOW

A car is faster than a bicycle.
A bicycle is slower than a car.

 

BIG / SMALL

The red bag is bigger than the blue bag.
The blue bag is smaller than the red bag.
