  2. 2. 132 Good day Learner! How are you today? You have already learned how to use descriptive words in your previous modules. Can you still remember how to compare regular adjectives? Yes, by adding er and est to the adjectives. This module will help you learn how to compare irregular adjectives. A. Choose the correct form of adjectives. Do this in your notebook. 1. Solomon is the ______________ king of all. 2. Soya milk is _______________ than chocolate. 3. Mayon Volcano is the _______________ volcano for me. To the Learner Let’s Try This Let’s Learn This wise wiser wisest healthy healthier healthiest majestic more majestic most majestic
  3. 3. 133 4. My father is an _______________ man. 5. I was the ______________ when my friend graduated with honors. Finished? Are your answers like these?

  4. 4. 134 If your answers are not all correct, don’t worry, this module will help you learn how to use these adjectives in making comparisons. As a review, just remember that most adjectives form their comparative degree by adding –er to the one-syllable adjectives and by adding more to other adjectives and their superlative degree by adding –est to one-syllable adjectives and by adding most or least to other adjectives. Example: long longer longest delicious more delicious most delicious Read the paragraph. Take note of the underlined adjectives. Japan spends much money for food. The Philippines spends more than it does. The United States spends the most of the three countries. Answer the following questions. 1. How many countries are compared in the paragraph? 2. What is the word used to compare Japan and the Philippines? 3. In comparing the three countries, what is the word used? 4. Which country spends the least money for food? Read the sentences again. 1. Japan spends much money for food. 2. The Philippines spends more than Japan does. 3. The United States spends the most of the three countries. The adjective in sentence 1 describes only one country. It is in the positive degree. Let’s Study This
  5. 5. 135 The degree in sentence 2 compares two countries: Japan and Philippines. It is in the comparative degree. The adjective most in sentence 3 compares three countries. It is in the superlative degree. - What kind of adjectives are much, more and most? Much, more and most are irregular adjectives. They form their comparative and superlative forms in a totally different way – by changing the spelling of the word or by changing the entire word. Study the chart.
