Superlative Adjectives in Spanish
Superlative adjectives indicate the maximum degree of an adjective, usually described as the most or the least of something.
Forming Superlative Adjectives
To form the superlative in Spanish, you will use a formula very similar to that of comparisons, with the important addition of the definite article.
Regular Superlative Formulas
most: definite article (el, la, los, las) + más + adjective
least: definite article (el, la, los, las) + menos + adjective
You can also add -ísimo to an adjective (and even some adverbs) to talk about an extreme degree of something. This handy suffix can translate to very, really, extremely, super, quite, among few others.
Lists to the Rescue!
Below you will find a list of useful -ísimo adjectives.
Adjectives that end in -ble tend to change to -bil- when used with -ísimo.
Many qualitative adjectives that have an r in the final syllable do not always take the -ísimo ending, but instead take the -érrimo ending.
When an adjective ends in -n, -dor, or -or, -ísimo usually changes to -císimo.
