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.
