Today we are going to be looking at superlatives. Most English words add superlatives at the end of their words to express an amount. For example, it is the “oldest” book in the store. In this example we are stressing that this particular book is older than all the others.
Superlatives can be seen in the following forms:
– the adjective+est: in most cases, adjectives with 1 or 2 syllables take the “the~est” form (e.g. clean – the cleanest / big – the biggest)
