 Adjectives as Comparisons

This next section concludes the Adjective chapter with a brief introduction to adjectives used for comparisons.

Comparative adjectives can be used to compare people and things and show three degrees.


Adjectives can change and show the degree to which a certain quality is present. This change in form to show a difference is called comparison.
