Here is something that I have just learned from one of my assignments.

Most descriptive adjectives have the dregrees of comparison:

Positive Comparative Superlative

long longer longest

Positive degree is the base form of the adjective and is used to describe one person, place, thing, quality, idea, or group of things. ( That is a small dog)

The comparative degree is used to compare two people, places, ideas, qualities or things.

( The beagle is smaller than the Doberman.)

The superlative degree is used to compare more than two persons, places, or things.

(Snoopy is the smallest dog I ever saw.)

Hopefully I have helped someone understand descriptive adjectives and the dregrees of comparison.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Yes!! You are right, I have got a simple way to remember the adjectives. This is a one way to understand it.
Thank you!!!

Perhaps it would be easier to help you if you specified what your question was, rather than posting on to a thread that started years ago.

In other words, you're not helping us with knowing how to help you!

tnx made me understand
tell me more examples of adjective degrees?
You can do this yourself, Anon. Just choose an adjective - 'chilly', for instance:

Chilly - chillier - chilliest

Now, you try it.
