ADJECTIVES
We use the positive form when we compare two similar or equal nouns.

as + adjective + as

e.g. John is as tall as Ali.

We use the comparative form when we compare two dissimilar or unequal nouns. or
more + adjective + than adjective + -er + than e.g. May is more intelligent than Sue. e.g. This house is smaller than that one.

We use the superlative form when we compare three or more nouns. or


the + most + adjective the + adjective + -est e.g. This is the most interesting of the three books. e.g. Hisham is the fastest runner in the team.

ADJECTIVES
The negative form of the adjective can be made by adding un-, dis-, im-. For example:
unkind, unimportant, unfriendly, unhealthy, unfair, uninteresting, unsafe dishonest, disrespectful, disobedient, disapproving, discourteous, etc. impatient, improper, impossible, impractical, impersonal, imperfect, etc.

Adjectives can be formed from nouns and verbs by adding -al, -able, -ful, -less, -ous, -y, -ly, -ish, -ese, -ist, etc.
e.g. fiction mountain comfort beauty colour Japan fictional mountainous comfortable beautiful colourless Japanese trick friend wood fool Tao tricky friendly wooden foolish Taoist
