LESSON 25 ADVERBS
 
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.

1. softly
2. lazily
