  1. Comparison of Adjectives and Adverbs

  2. The Basics

  3. Adjectives

  4. Spelling • Consonant, vowel, consonant= double the last letter • Big bigger, hot hotter • Final y becomes an i • Easy easiest, funny funnier

  5. Other ways to compare • To say that two things are the same, use: • …as + adjectives + as…. • Mojitos are just as expensive as other mixed drinks. • To say that one thing is less than another use: • Not so/as + adjective + as • Bottled mojitos aren’t as good as hand-made ones. • Less/least + adjective • Bottled mojitos are less expensive than hand-made ones, but beer is the least expensive.

  6. Comparisons of Adverbs

  7. Other ways to compare • To say two things are the same use • As + adverb + as… • I drink mojitos as often as my friends. • To say that we do one thing differently from another use: • Not so/as + adverb+ as • I don’t make mojitos as well as my boyfriend.

  8. More Advanced

  9. A big difference • Far+ comparative+ than • Nowhere near as….as • Considerably +comparative+ than • Not nearly as ….as • A great deal+ comparative+ than

  10. A small difference • Almost as…as • Nearly as…as • Slightly + comparative+ than • Not quite as…as
