Comparison of adjectives

Report
We use adjectives to describe the noun.
Adjectives add information about the noun.
For example:
The bag is beautiful.
Shrek is green.
Sometimes we want to compare between
people, or between animals or any other objects
(cars, shoes ,buildings etc.) and then we also
use the adjectives.
For example: The tallest man in the world.
1.
When we compare between two people/things
that are the same :
Dana is as tall as Ronit.
The spider is as
big as a plate.
The rule:
The noun+
as +adjective+ as + the other noun.
The baby boy is as cute as his baby sister.
as
adjective
The nouns are the same, they are equal. ( ‫ שווים‬,‫זהים‬
‫)בתכונה מסוימת‬
2. When we compare between two nouns that are
not the same, one is more than the other- we use
comparative adjectives.
Tom is bigger than Jerry.
Spelling rules

add the word more before it.
