• We use comparatives to compare two things or two people.

- Mani is taller than Kate.
- Superman is faster and stronger than me.

The rules to form comparatives:

1. One syllable adjective: add 'er' at the end of the adjective.

- Fast - Faster
- Tall - Taller
- Strong - Stronger
- Big - Bigger

2. Two-syllable or more adjectives: use 'more' before the adjective.

- Expensive - More expensive
- Intelligent - More intelligent
- Beautiful - More beautiful

3. Two syllables which end in 'y': take away the 'y' and add 'ier'.

- Happy - Happier
- Easy - Easier

4. Exceptions:

- Good - Better
- Bad - Worse
- Far - Further
- Little - Less
- Many or Much - More
