Les Comparatifs et superlatifs

Voyons d'abord les comparatifs. Comme leur nom l'indique, ils permettent de comparer deux personnes, ou deux choses. Ils fonctionnent cependant légèrement différemment du français.

On doit tout d'abord faire attention à l'adjectif. Car s'il s'agit d'un adjectif court ou long, cela ne fonctionne pas de la même manière.

Exemple: les adjectifs big, tall, long, short, nicesont des adjectifs courts, car ils ne possèdentsqu'UNE seule syllabe.

On va aussi inclure dans la liste des adjectifs courts, tous les adjectifs de DEUX syllabes qui TERMINENT par Y, comme easy, funny, etc...

Les adjectifs longs sont tous les autres adjectifs qui n'obéissent pas à cette règle.

- Pour le comparatif de supériorité (plus que), cela va se construire comme suit:

Adjectif court + -er + thanou bien more + adjectif long + than

Exemple:New York isbiggerthanParis. Paris ismore beautifulthanNew York

New York isfunnierthanParis

- Pour le comparatif d'infériorité (moins que), la construction est la même quelle que soit la taille de l'adjectif:

less + adjectif + thanExemple: New York islessbeautifulthanParis

- Pour le comparatif d'égalité, on utilise as + adjectif + as, quel que soit l'adjectif

Exemple: New York isas nice as Paris


Welcome to new york city

Les Comparatifs et superlatifs

Les superlatifs fonctionnent presque comme les comparatifs, sauf qu'il n'existe que les superlatifs de supériorité et d'infériorité. Ils permettent de montrer qu'une personne ou une chose est supérieure ou inférieure à tout un groupe.

- Pour le superlatif de supériorité, distinguez à nouveau les adjectifs courts des adjectifs longs.

the + adjectif court + -est ou bien the most + adjectif long

Ex: New York isthe nicestcity in the world New York isthe mostmulticulturalcity of the US

- Pour le superlatif d'infériorité, utilisez the least à chaque fois:

Ex: Central Park isthe least pollutedplace of New York

Quelques exceptions (il y en a presque toujours):

Le comparatif de supériorité de good donne better, et le superlatif de supériorité donne the best

Le comparatif de supériorité de bad donne worse, et le superlatif de supériorité donne the worst...
