Comparative and Superlative Adjectives in Songs

Comparative adjectives

One way of describing a person or thing is by saying that they have more of a particular quality than someone or something else. To do this, we use comparative adjectives, which are formed either by adding '-er' at the end of the adjective, or placing 'more' before the adjective, e.g:

"She is more intelligent than her sister"

"London is bigger than Oxford".



Superlative adjectives

It is also possible to describe someone or something by saying that they have more of a particular quality than any other of their kind. We do this by using superlative adjectives, which are formed by adding '-est' at the end of the adjective and placing 'the' before it, or placing 'the most' before the adjective, e.g.:

" Shanghai is world's the biggest city".
