    Re: Degrees of Comparisons

    What do you mean by 'degrees of comparison'? I am afraid that the question isn't very clear.

    Most adjectives and adverbs have different forms to show

    few fewer fewest
    recent more recent most recent
    bad worse worst

    Adverbs
    soon sooner soonest
    recently more recently most recently
    badly worse worst

    Regular Forms
    Use—er or more to form the comparative degree and—est or most to form the
    superlative degree.

    REGULAR FORMS OF COMPARISON
    One- and two-syllable modifiers
    large larger largest
    pretty prettier prettiest
    helpless more helpless most helpless

    Three or more syllables
    beautiful more beautiful most beautiful
