Adjectives and Comparison of Adjectives

形容词和形容词的比较

Words which tell us something about nouns are called adjective. Adjectives tell us about the colour, shape, size or condition of nouns.
用来修饰名词的词被称为形容词。形容词描述名词的颜色
形状、大小或状态。


e.g.   a green leaf, a round table, a big box, a metal pot

In a sentence, we place an adjective:
a)  before a noun

e.g.   It is tall building.

b)   after a verb "to be" (is, are, was, were).

e.g.   The market is noisy.

We use:
a)   the positive degree to compare two 
       equal things or  people.
       原级来比较两个相等的东西或人。

e.g.   Miss Lim is as young as Miss Yi.

b)   the comparative degree to compare 
       two unequal things or people.
       比较级来比较两个不相等的东西或人。

e.g.   Miss Pei is younger than Miss Lim.

c)  the superlative degree to compare 
     three or more unequal things or people.
     最高级来比较三个或以上不相等的人或东西。

e.g.   Miss Yip is the youngest among them.

Some adjectives form their comparatives and superlatives with more and most.
有些形容词以 more 和 most 构成比较级和最高级。

e.g.   
Comparative 比较级
Superlative最高级
more interesting
most interesting
more slippery
most slippery
