Adjectives can be used to compare people, places, or things different in degree. So, if you have a one syllable adjective, you use the suffix “er” or “est“, or the words in front of it, “less” or “least“.
So, say we have the word “new“.
And then, we want to make the comparative form of new. We add the suffix “er” to make it “newer“.
And if we’re trying to compare with three or more objects, then we would put “est” as a suffix to make it “newest“. So, that’s the superlative form.
So, say you have one car, and it’s only a month old. You would say you have a new car.
