Comparison of adjectives
We use adjectives to compare two or more nouns. Adjectives have three forms of comparison: positive, comparative, and superlative.
Gold is hard, silver is harder than gold, but platinum is the hardest of the three metals.
Now, read the text below in which Zoe compares her own, and her friends' clothing styles. Click all the comparative and superlative forms of the adjectives in her description. Use the ‘Grammar Log’ for help.
I like many different styles but, for me, the coolest is boho. I love wearing things like baggy shirts, big purses, and long necklaces. I prefer shoes with lower heels because you can walk much faster in them than in high heels. Lucas is a hipster and his style is as cool as mine but a bit more special, I think. He usually wears skinny jeans, big Buddy Holly glasses, and a messenger bag. He also loves piercings. Anna’s style is different. It is sophisticated, and more formal than mine. But I don't really fancy it because it is the most expensive of all the styles I know. Anna always buys very good materials such as silk. She picks the tightest pencil skirts, but that's okay for her because she is slim and taller than most of my friends, and it suits her very well.
