Comparatives versus Superlatives
Do you know what comparatives and superlatives are? A comparative, sometimes known as a comparative adjective, compares two or more things/actions. A superlative is when an adjective is modified to describe the noun to a degree greater than that of anything it is being compared to in a given context. This may sound confusing, but it’s quite simple; let’s take a look at some examples:
ex. The city is more exciting than the country
ex. Buses are not as comfortable as cars.
ex. The city is the most exciting place around here.
ex. Buses are the least comfortable form of transportation.
