Урок 10: Степени сравнения прилагательных

  1. Read the text:

Most descrip­tive adjec­tives can show degree of qual­i­ty or quan­ti­ty by form­ing two degrees of com­par­i­son: the com­par­a­tive degree and the superla­tive degree. These degrees are formed from the pos­i­tive degree, which is the usu­al form of adjec­tives. The com­par­a­tive and superla­tive forms can be sim­ple (big­ger, biggest) or com­pound (more atten­tive, most attentive).

The com­par­a­tive degree and the superla­tive degree are formed by adding the suf­fix­es ER and EST to the pos­i­tive form of the adjec­tive or by using MORE and MOST before the pos­i­tive form of the adjec­tive. The choice of ER, EST or MORE, MOST depends most­ly on the num­ber of syl­la­bles in the adjective.


Descrip­tive — описательный
qual­i­ty - качество
quan­ti­ty - количество
com­pound — сложный, составной
syl­la­ble – слог
