|2. Comparison of Adjectives|
When we compare two or more nouns, we make use of comparative adjectives and superlative adjectives.We use the following three forms of comparison when we compare two or more nouns.
The absolute form

When comparing two nouns, we use a comparative form of adjective to describe how one person
or thing is when compared to another person or thing. In making such a comparison, we have to
use the word than to show that one noun is bigger, longer, taller, etc. than the other one.
The superlative form
When comparing three or more nouns, we use a superlative form of adjective. We use the word
the when using the superlative adjective to compare.
More and most
We can use the words more and most in front of an adjective to form respectively the comparative and superlative. Use the adverbial more with most adjectives that have two or more syllables, and most with all adjectives that have more than two or more syllables. For example, the word big has one syllable, funny has two syllables, and beautiful has three syllables. Regardless of the number of syllables, the adjective itself does not change in form when used with more or most.
