No: that's wrong. Participial adjectives like "boring" allow only analytic comparative and superlative forms. So we have "the more / most boring", but not the *"the boringer / boringest".

i think the answer is the boringest. because i am the cleverest.

i I think the answer is the boringest. , because i I am the cleverest.

"Clever" can be inflected: "cleverer"/"cleverest", but as previously explained, "boring" is a participial adjective and hence cannot be inflected: it must be the analytical "more boring" / "most boring".


Incidentally, it's "I", not "i".

Most boring

I don't know which one is right but I am doing a Christmas card for my English teacher so I am not going to risk it. Also on Word it says the boringest is wrong so I don't know what to believe.

In this case, you can definitely believe Word.


In casual conversation, we often invent non-standard comparative and superlative forms for comic effect or exaggeration..

"This isn't standard English, of course - it's the sort of thing a little kid who didn't know any better might say. But some English speakers who aren't little kids use it too in a mildly humorous way. They wouldn't do so when they were trying to sound mature, literate and grammatical, though."

i wanted an answer, turns out you old "english" men
