ADJECTIVES

Adjectives in English don’t have gender and are never plural.

There are three degrees of comparison;

1) positive 2)comparative 3)superlative

1) Positive

We use the positive form when we want to say someone/something is the same as

someone/something else; as + adjective + as

Mary is as tall as John

When we want to say something/someone is not the same as something/someone else;

not + so/as + adjective + as

Mary isn’t as tall as John.

Mary isn’t so tall as John.

Write sentences with the words given. Use the positive form of the

adjectives.

1. James / old / my brother Sam. …………………………………………….

2. Jim / not clever / he thinks..………..……………………………………...

3. Brazil / not / big / Canada...….…………………………………………….

4. He / blind / a bat.…………………………………………………………..

5. My mother / deaf / a post..…..…………………………………………….

6. My younger sister / good / gold……………………………………………

7. Naples / not / safe / Benevento…………………………………………….

8. Cricket / not / exciting / football…………………………………………..

2) Comparative Adjectives

Comparatives are used when you compare two people, places or things / two groups of

people or things.

One –syllable adjectives form their comparative by adding “er” to the positive form.

tall taller

Mary is taller than John.

Adjectives ending in “e” add “r”

brave braver

Adjectives ending in a consonant + y the “y” changes into “i” and you add “er”

pretty prettier

One-syllable adjectives that end with one final consonant preceded by one final vowel,

you double the last consonant before adding “er”

hot hotter

big bigger 1

Adjectives of three or more syllables form their comparative by putting “more” before the

positive; intelligent more intelligent

Some adjectives are irregular; good better

bad worse

With comparative adjectives we use “than”

John is stronger than Tom.
