What is a comparison in the sentence?

[vc_separator border_width=”2″][dt_teaser]An English comparison is a way of comparing of several things to each other within a sentence. However, it also counts as a comparison when a single thing is evaluated in the superlative.[/dt_teaser]

How do you make a comparison in the English sentence?

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

Here it is primarily distinguished in which form the adjectives stand. Thus, in case of inequality of comparison, the adjective may be both positive and comparative. Furthermore, the adjective can also be in the superlative and thus expresses the highest form of progression.

Equality | The English comparison that something is just

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

… as + (Positive) + as …

The equality in an English sentence takes two objects under an adjective into account, where in the case of this adjective both are equally represented.

 

An example would be:

The sky is as big as the ocean.

Inequality | English Comparison that something is a little better

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

In an inequality, we also compare the equality of two objects with the help of an adjective. However, in this case one of the objects has a greater expression of the adjective.

The English comparison with the positive

However, the slightest difference is in the positive, or tends to be a smaller one.

 

VARIANT 1

Not as + (Positive) + as

The sky is not as big as the ocean.

 

VARIANT 2

Less + (positive) + as

The sky is less big as the ocean.

On the other hand, there is a bigger difference in the comparative.

 

An example:

The sky is bigger than the ocean.

The English comparison with the superlative

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

the (Superlative)

And greatest possibility in the superlative.

 

An example:

The gradual progression in English

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

(Comparative) + and + (comparative)

This describes a condition that lasts for another time in the future.

 

An example:

The sky is bigger and bigger.

 

NOTE

Adjectives with more and most will need more and more + (adjective).

What is the positive, comparative, superlative?

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

These are all forms of progression of English adjectives.

 

An example for this:

Positive – Comparative – Superlative    |   good – better – best

About me

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

Hey, I used to think that language learning was innate. Either you can speak English or not and it doesn’t matter how much you learn -“Anyway I don’t record good grades in English.” And that’s where English is so important.

 

After a while, I gave myself one last chance to learn English. Only this time I limited myself to the essential points.

For me, that meant verbs: formation – examples – signal words & usage

This method enabled me to learn English faster than ever before.

 

Since then I know that learning languages is not innate. And through that realization, my vision has become to offer other students the opportunity to learn English, just like I did back then. Now I ask you to help me by sharing this article with your friends!

Thank you very much!
