Some examples of Positive, .parative and Superlative Degrees of .parison. Positive .parative Superlative Good Better Best Hot Hotter Hottest Sharp Sharper Sharpest Tall Taller Tallest Short Shorter Shortest Large Larger Largest Small Smaller Smallest Dry More dry (drier) Most dry (driest) Cold More cold (colder) Most cold (coldest) Proud More proud (prouder) Most proud (proudest) High Higher Highest Legible More legible Most legible Great Greater Greatest Cut Cut Cut Put Put Put Useful More useful Most useful Ferocious More ferocious Most ferocious Nutritive More nutritive Most nutritive Pretty More pretty (prettier) Most pretty (Prettiest) We should remember that we have two things to .pare in .parative degrees. We can say one is better than the other. In cases, when we have to make .parison between more than two Persons / Objects, we have to say one or one group is better or worse than the other. Ex: A, B, C and D are .pared. A is taller than B B is taller than C D is of the same height of C B is taller than C and D, but, shorter than A. Changing the Degrees of .parison – POSITIVE Degree occurs when we make a statement or a matter of fact without .parison. – .PARITIVE Degree occurs when we .pare two things / place / persons. – SUPERLATIVE Degree occurs when more than two things / place / persons are involved. Remember, beyond Superlative there is nothing more to be .pared. If only two persons / places need to be .pared, then one can use the Superlative. – When forming .parative degree, normally add a) er to positive Ex: tall taller sharp sharper old older short shorter young younger long longer large larger high higher b) for superlative, add est to positive. tall taller tallest sharp sharper sharpest old older oldest short shorter shortest young younger youngest long longer longest large larger largest high higher highest c) for word ending with y remove y from positive and add ier for .parative and iest for superlative. heavy heavier heaviest lucky luckier luckiest pretty prettier prettiest dirty dirtier dirtiest merry merrier merriest dirty more dirty most dirty The Adjectives which have two syllables, will have more for .parative and most for superlative. Ex: beautiful more beautiful most beautiful honest more honest most honest popular more popular most popular reliable more reliable most reliable pretty more pretty (prettier) most pretty (prettiest) Some form themselves into .parative and superlative in an irregular pattern. Positive .parative Superlative good / well better best bad / ill worse worst high higher highest little less least much / many more most far farther farthest fore former foremost / first You will be.e familiar with more words to use in Degrees of .parison by reading. For changing from one degree to another. From Positive to .parative. a) Find out the .parative form of positive and place it in the place of positive adjective and follow it with than or to and follow it with the object. Rama is elder (.parative) to Lakshmanan To change into superlative, you should make sure or ensure that all the persons / places / things .pared are taken into account. In superlative, you should leave nothing out of .parison. In the above example, in .parative, we have taken only two persons ; Rama and Lakshmanan If we are certain that we have to make a statement involving Rama and Lakshmanan to indicate who is elder of the two, .parative degree will do. But, if we have more than two people, if we say, Rama is elder to Lakshmanan, when two others namely, Bharata and Shatrugana are involved, if we say Rama is elder to Lakshmana, we will not know if Bharata or Shatrugana is elder to Rama. So, if we say, Rama is the eldest of four brothers, we have taken into account Bharata and Shatrugana. We get the clear picture that Rama is the eldest of the four. Let us see another example for changing from one degree to another. Madurai is the oldest town in Tamil Nadu (Superlative). The meaning is that there is no other city in Tamil Nadu which is older than Madurai. So, to convert the above into superlative and convey the same meaning, we should say Madurai is older than any other city in Tamil nadu. We can also express the same in another way. No other city in Tamil Nadu is older than Madurai. However, the emphasis we want to give on Madurai is slightly different or varied. This, we shall discuss later. Shakespeare is greater than any other English poet. (.parative) Shakespeare is the greatest of English Poets (superlative). As a rule, make sure the meaning in various degrees remain the same, instead of blindly following hints. In fact, while dealing with grammar, we should pay more attention to the meaning conveyed, whatever be the circumstances. Change the degree of .parison without changing the meaning. 1) The pen is mightier than the sword. 2) Cow is more useful than any other animal. 3) Mount Everest is the highest peak in the World. 4) Mariana Trench is the deepest point in the ocean 5) It is better to have loved and lost than to have not loved at all. 6) Mango is sweeter than Lime. 7) Very few Nations are as materialistic as the USA. 8) Samudra Gupta was greater than any other King in India. 9) No other orator was more powerful as Demosthenes. 10) I have more books than you.
