-erending. For example, we change ‘short’ to ‘shorter’ to make a comparative word. A superlative word is one whose quality, whether good or bad, surpasses all others. For example, we change “cute” to “cutest” to show that it is number one of its kind. As you can see, all you have to do to get the superlative is add
-estto the root word. But, my friends, this is English, and there are exceptions. That’s where this lesson comes in. I will teach you superlative and comparative words that are exceptions to the rule, like “worst”, “best”, “most”, “least”, “farthest”, “more”, “less”, “worse”, and “better”. These are common words that most people use every day, so it’s important to understand them and to say them correctly.
I suppose the second question in the quiz was about Michael Phelps?
i got 5 correct but i have put knowledge in this quiz.and i think i need to understand the sentence. thank u and te’ll next time.
THank you for your course, it was great ?
Seems I need to study more.
Thank you James!
I guess this is a mistake with two incorrect answers in the question №9. Gentliest and gentist are not a superlative of “gentle”. Am I right?
I thought the same and I chose the “most gentle” :D I said both of them are uncorrect so I have only one left. But I was wrong :/
gentist ?!!!! Hello James you know I love you. but what is gentist
Hi James, everyone. Here are my five sentences.
. Pluton is the farthest planet.
. Sun is the biggest astro of universe.
. Engvid.com is a online english school much better than any other.
. In a second time I did the quiz I got out better than first.
