Comparative adjectives

Comparative Adjectives

To compare 2 things, or 2 people, or 2 places:

  • I am taller than my brother.

  • Jackson is bigger than Bells.

  • An iPad is better than a laptop.

    But we can use it to compare more than two things like:

  • I am taller than my brother and my sister.

  • Jackson is bigger than Bells and Alamo.

  • An iPad is better than a laptop and a desktop.

    We can also use the comparative without stating the other thing if it’s understood such as:

  • I feel better. (Meaning that it is understood to the person you are talking to than that you fell better than you did before).
