Adverbs can be used to compare and contrast dissimilar actions. So, the comparative form of a word is used to compare two actions, and the superlative form of a word is used to refer to one in a group of three or more that is the outstanding example of the action.
So, when we’re dealing with one syllable adverbs, we use the suffix “er” or “est“, or we use the words “less” or “least“.
So, say we have the word “late“. To get to the comparative form of the word “late“, we just add a suffix “er” to make it “later“.
