Comparative Adjectives (3)

 

Adjectives are words that describe nouns. Adjectives can also be Comparative – this means that they mean “more + adjective.”

 

With most short adjectives (1 or 2 syllables), you add “-er.”

· big - bigger

· funny - funnier

· fast - faster

 

With longer adjectives, you add the word “more.”

· important  - more important

· interesting - more interesting

· beautiful - more beautiful

 

*If an adjective ends in “consonant-y,” you have to change the y to i, then add -er. (funnier, easier)

 

*If an adjective ends in “vowel-consonant,” you have to double the consonant, then add –er. (bigger, thinner)
