The answer above, are just answered of the cuff,however, this question got interesting so I have to research it.

This is a challenge, I got to look it up. Most of the shorter adjectives -and some adverbs form the comparative by the simple adding,"er and the superlative by adding,"est" especially if they end in a vowel sound.

Thge comparative is used to shoow a greater degree or to compare two things.

The superlative is used to show a greater degree or to refer to three or more in comparision.



Cómo Gus escribí, siempre puede hacer estas formas con 'more' y 'most'. Pero con muchos adjetivos en Inglés puede añadir también '-er' para el comparativo y '-est' para el superlativo.

As Gus wrote, you can always form these with 'more' and 'most'. But with very many adjectives in English you can also add -er for the comparitive and -est for the superlative,

Entonces -

clever, cleverer, cleverest
gentle, gentler, gentlest
pero no con 'handsome' - usa 'more' y 'most'
quiet, quieter, quietest
simple, simpler, simplest
