    Re: urgent

    Welcome, Nina.

    The general rule is, add -er and -est if the word has one syllable, and use more and most of the word has more than one syllable:

    one syllable
    big => bigger, biggest
    small => smaller, smallest

    more than one syllable
    elegant => more elegant, most elegant
    beautiful => more beautiful, most beautiful

    Note, the adjective "huge" has one syllable.

    Re: urgent

    You can also find "more huge" and "the most huge" quite wide spread on the Internet and in the newspapers but I would also go for "huger" and "hugest"
