Imagine the world without colors. Everything is flat, plain, forgettable, and merely passing. That’s how it is when you don’t know how to use adjectives. These are words we use to describe something. Learn to use adjectives in appropriate settings, and find out how to use them by following some rules.

Adjective Examples

Using adjectives also means knowing how to compare things and experiences. It is true that constant comparison is not okay, but sometimes a comparison helps us in decision-making.

How can we compare the things? Now, let’s take a look at the “Degrees Of Comparison”.

  • Positive Degree
  1. The children are angry with their parents.
  2. She is a beautiful girl.
  3. This place is a little cold
  4. That horror house is really dark
  5. She bought a cheap new car.
  6. The animals that they feed are so hungry.
  7. That ice cream cake is a little sweet.
  8. They have a safe trip going to the province.
  9. The weather today is so terrible.
  10. I have a strong feeling that you will do it.
  • Comparative Degree

The comparative degree of an adjective shows a higher degree. We use comparative if we are to compare two objects and two persons to know their differences.

Things to know:

  • Add -est to the positive form of the adjective.
  • Add more before the adjective
  • Form the superlative form of a one-syllable adjective by adding -est.
  • If one-syllable adjective ends with an e, just add -st for the superlative form.
  • Add -est to adjectives that end in consonant-vowel-consonant and double the last consonant.
  • If the two-syllable adjective ends in -y, change y to I and add -est.
  • Add most to an adjective that has 3 or more syllables.
