  1. Superlative Forms

  2. Superlatives compare three or more people or things.

  3. One syllable adjectives and adverbs: - Add –est at the end of the adjective/adverb. • Use the before the superlative. (big) Sydney is the biggest city in Australia. (hard) I think my friend works the hardest. (sweet) My students are the sweetest students in the world.

  4. Two- syllable adjectives: -If the adjective ends in –er or –y usually add –est. ( friendly) My brother is the friendliest boy. • Express the opposite idea with the least + adjective My neighbor is the least friendly.

  5. Two- syllable adjectives ending in –ful: We add the most + adjective, the least + adjective. (stressful) Finding flights is the most stressful part of travel. (beautiful) My friend is the most beautiful girl.

  6. Other adjective and adverbs: that have more than two syllables: we add the most / the least. (popular) Football is the most popular sport in the US. (frequently) football is the most frequently watched sport on TV.

  7. Irregulars: Good > best Bad > worst Far > farthest Little > least Well > best Badly > worst Many > most Much > most

  8. Nouns: Use the most or the fewest with count nouns. Who has been to the most museums? Use the most or the least with noncount nouns. I’ve spent the least money. Page 176

  9. Expressing Similarities with so, too, either, neither Sometimes two sentences of similarity have different subjects but the same verb. We combine them using so, too, either and neither. So + too : for affirmative sentences. Either + neither: for negative sentences.

  10. So and too 1. Verb to be: I’am Saudi. Noura is Saudi. Too: Additions: I’am Saudi, and Noura is, too. Responses: I’am Saudi. Noura is, too. Too comes after verb to be.

  11. I’am Saudi. Hind is Saudi So: Additions: I’am Saudi, andso is Hind. Responses: I’am Saudi. So is Hind. So comes before verb to be.

  12. 2. With other verbs: I love fast food. Noura loves fast food. Too: Additions: I love fast food, andNouradoes, too. Responses: I love fast food. Nouradoes, too. Too comes after the auxiliary verb (does, did, did, have, has, …..etc)

  13. I love fast food. Hind loves fast food. So: Additions: I love fast food, andso does Hind. Responses: I love fast food. Sodoes Hind. So comes before the auxiliary verb.

  14. Either and neither 1.Verb to be: I’am not American. Noura isn’t American. Either: Additions: I’am not American, and Noura isn’t either. Responses: I’am not American. Noura isn’t either. Either comes after verb to be.

  15. I’m not American. Hind isn’t American. Neither: Additions: I’m not American, and neither is Hind. Responses: I’m not American. Neither is Hind. Neither comes before verb to be. No “not” after neither.

  16. 2. With other verbs: I don’t like fast food. Noura doesn’t like fast food. Either: Additions: I don’t like fast food, and Noura doesn’t either. Responses: I don’t like fast food. Noura doesn’t either. Either comes after the auxiliary verb.
