Bored?

"'I'm bored' is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you've seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless, it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you're alive is amazing, so you don't get to say 'I'm bored.'" Louis C.K

ADJECTIVES: COMPARATIVES AND SUPERLATIVES

Comparatives and Superlatives


Los comparativos sirven justamente para comparar una misma cualidad o característica en dos sustantivos.
Por ejemplo, en la frase "a small shirt" (una camisa chica), small es un adjetivo. Para comparar este objeto con otro, se usa el adjetivo comparativo, "a smaller shirt" (una camisa más chica).
Para formar el comparativo, se deben seguir las siguientes reglas:
  • Se agrega al adjetivo "er" o "r", si ya termina en "e".
    small - smaller
  • Si la palabra termina en vocal + consonante, se duplica la consonante.
    big - bigger
  • Si termina en "y" se cambia por "ier".
    happy - happier

Cuando el adjetivo tiene más de tres sílabas, el comparativo se forma usando la palabra "more" adelante.
expensive - more expensive
careful -
more careful
Para comparar dos objetos en una oración, se agrega "than".
This shirt is smaller than that shirt.
Esta camisa es más chica que aquella camisa
