Adverbs like adjectives can be compared.
They have the same three degrees (1) positive - one thing or person, (2)
comparative - two things or persons, and (3) superlative - more than two
things or persons. Most adverbs formed from adjectives use more
or most to express comparisons.
Example: slowly, more slowly, most slowly
Write the comparative and superlative forms
of the following adverbs.
1. softly, more softly, most softly
2. lazily, more lazily, most lazily
3. heavily, more heavily, most heavily
4. comfortably, more comfortably, most
5. quietly, more quietly, most quietly
Some adverbs, including those that can also
be adjectives, use er and est to form comparisons.
Example: soon, sooner, soonest
Form the comparative and superlative of
1. early, earlier, earliest
2. high, higher, highest
3. fast, faster, fastest
4. hard, harder, hardest
5. often, oftener or more often, oftenest
or most often
Some adverbs have an irregular comparison.
Example: well, better, best
Give the comparative and superlative of
1. far, farther, farthest
2. little, less, least
3. much, more, most
4. badly, worse, worst
5. ill, worse, worst
