-------------------------------------------------------PART 2 --------------------------------------------------------
When we compare two things or people we look at what makes them different from each other.
For example:

Examples:
The man on the left is taller than the man on the right. A car is faster than a bicycle.
Comparative adjectives are used to show what quality one thing has more or less than the other. They normally come before any other adjectives.
For example:

The red bag is bigger than the blue bag.
The rule for forming the comparative is any one syllable adjective add -er to the end. Any longer adjective (two syllables or more) use more in front of the adjective.
For example:


  • "Mount Everest is higher than Mount Snowdon.", 'high' is a short (one syllable) word.

"Arguably, Rome is more beautiful than Paris.", beautiful is a long word, (when comparing two things like this we put than between the adjective and the thing being compared).
The following adjectives are exceptions to this rule:


  • 'good' becomes 'better'
  • 'bad' becomes 'worse'
  • 'far' becomes 'farther' or 'further'
