ADVERBS : What is an Adverb? : Adverbs that Indicate : Interrogative Adverbs : Modal Adverbs : Double Negatives : Difficulties in Using Adverbs : Conjunctive Adverbs : Comparison of Adverbs : Adverbs used as Adjectives

Comparison of Adverbs


Comparison of Adverbs Adverbs also resemble adjectives because their forms can show different degrees of comparison.

You form the comparative degree of an adverb, similar to the degrees of adjectives, by adding er, or by prefixing more or less to the positive form. You form the superlative degree by adding est to the positive form.

Positive Comparative Superlative
fast faster fastest
long longer longest
far farther farthest
hard harder hardest
short shorter shortest

NOTE— Adverbs in -ly do not add the endings -er and -est, as do the corresponding adjectives. The adverb uses more and most instead.

Positive Comparative Superlative
swiftly more swiftly most swiftly
sweetly more sweetly most sweetly
warmly more warmly most warmly
strangely more strangely most strangely
willingly more willingly most willingly


NOTE— Some adverbs have irregular forms of comparison:

Positive Comparative Superlative
ill worse worst
well better best
much more most
little less least
