Comparatives versus Superlatives

Welcome back everyone to the Bogota Business English ‘Lecciones de inglés’ blog. Please join us for our next exciting Conversation Club on Wednesday, February 15th!

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:

COMPARATIVES

ex. The city is more exciting than the country

ex. Buses are not as comfortable as cars.

SUPERLATIVES

ex. The city is the most exciting place around here.

ex. Buses are the least comfortable form of transportation.
