    Irregular Adjectives

    Dear Sirs,

    Can you help me to getting complete list of the Irregular Adjectives in English. I am putting the examples of irregular adjective below for the HINT.

    Irregular Adjectives (comparative, superlative)

    good, better, the best
    Ex: Tara is the best athlete in the school.

    well (healthy), better, the best
    Ex: He is still in hospital, but he is better than he was last week.

    bad, worse, the worst
    Ex: You are the worst driver I have ever known.

    far, further, the furthest,
    Ex: My house is the furthest one.

    far, farther, the farthest
    Ex: My house is the farther one.

    Ex: old (people in a family), elder, the eldest
    Ram is my elder brother.

    Ex: old (general use), older, the oldest
    Your teacher is older than my teacher.


    Thanking You,

    Vishal

    The above is very difficult to read. I suggest the following format:

    alphabetically and then:

    good/better/best

    then a small sentence showing adjective usage.

    Vishal, I see that your post was submitted more than a few months ago, in May. Do you require further examples or do you have all the examples you need?

    Re: Irregular Adjectives

    ill worse worst
    badly worse worst

    late latter last?

    Japanese-English dictionaries say latter and last are comparative and superlative of late. But I haven't found such things in a dictionary, such as Longman, Oxford, and American Heritage.

    To my knowledge,

    late, later, latest
