Description

Powerpoint to explain short adjectives comparison to students.

We use the comparative degree for comparing two things.

SHORT ADJECTIVES (One syllable adjectives and adjectives ending in –y) 1.- TO FORM THE COMPARATIVE WE ADD –ER TO ONE SYLLABLE ADJECTIVES. WE ALSO ADD THE PARTICLE THAN IF WE MENTION THE TWO PARTS COMPARED. Bob is a long snake Greta is long er Greta is long er than Bob

(One syllable adjectives and adjectives ending in –y)

2.- WHEN THE ADJECTIVE ENDS IN Y , WE CHANGE THIS FOR I BEFORE ADDING – ER . This woman is happ y . Dino is happ ier . Dino is happ ier than this woman

2.- WHEN THE ADJECTIVE ENDS IN Y , WE CHANGE THIS FOR I BEFORE ADDING – ER .

Now, it’s your turn. Artie and Jim are good policemen. Artie is fat and Jim is thin . 1.- ARTIE IS ______________ JIM. 2.- JIM IS ______________ ARTIE. fatter than thinner than NOTE: when the adjective ends in a vowel between two consonants, we duplicate the last consonant before adding ER. LONG COMPARATIVES
