Quiz Information

We have already talked about how the meaning and purpose of an adjective is to describe a noun, but this week we will be talking about how we use adjectives to compare nouns. We will learn that you can add -er to most adjectives to compare two people, places or things, and -est is used to compare more than two people, places, or things.


Example 1: Collies have narrower heads than boxers.

Example 2: Terriers are some of the bravest of all dogs.
