Irregular comparisons
Adjectives have degrees of comparision. The three different forms of comparison are the positive, the comparative and the superlative.
 
The adjective in comparative degree is normally followed by than. The superlative form of the adjective compares more than two nouns. We use the before the superlative degree of an adjective. An adjective in the superlative degree is usually followed by of or in.
 
In English, some comparisons are regular, that is:
  
a. The comparative degree of single-syllable adjectives is formed by adding -er ending, and the superlative degree by adding -est ending to the positive form of the adjective.
 
b. The comparative degree of multi-syllable adjectives is formed by adding the word more, and the superlative degree is formed by adding the word most to the positive form of the adjective.
