Degrees of Comparison

Adjectives can take on different forms when they’re being used to compare two or more things. Let’s take a look at this example on the board. We have the word “fast“. That is an adjective in its most basic form.

So, if we were going to compare two things to each other, we would use the adjective “faster”.

So, an example of this adjective right here, “fast“, would be saying:

Look at that fast person.”

Now, if we were comparing two people, Jim and Steve, we would say:

Jim is faster than Steve.”

You wouldn’t say, “Jim is fast than Steve.” You would say, “Jim is faster than Steve.” Because you’re comparing two people.
