Comparison of Adverbs
Adverbs have three degrees of comparison namely positive comparative and superlative. We use the word “more” before the positive form, to get the comparative form of an adjective and the word “most”, to get the superlative form. That is to say some adverbs can be compared using ‘more’ at the comparative level and ‘most’ at the superlative level.
|1.||angrily||more angrily||most angrily|
|2.||freely||more freely||most freely|
|3.||quietly||more quietly||most quietly|
|4.||gladly||more gladly||most gladly|
|5.||terrible||more terrible||most terrible|
|6.||sweetly||more sweetly||most sweetly|
|7.||brightly||more brightly||most brightly|
