Grammar: Comparative Form

Comparatives are special forms of adjectives. We use comparatives to compare nouns. We usually use the word “than” when we compare two things with comparatives.

Example:

Meaning:

The sun is bigger than the moon.

The sun and the moon are not the same size. The sun is bigger and the moon is smaller.

Example:

Meaning:

Level 7 is more difficult than level 2.

Level 7 and level 2 are not the same. Level 7 is difficult and level 2 is easier.

Example:

Marco’s old roommate was messy. His new roommate is cleaner.

Meaning:

Marco’s new roommate is cleaner than his old roommate. In some cases like this, we don’t need to use the word “than” because we know what two things are being compared: Marco’s old and new roommate.
