(Para hacer una comparación en inglés, tenemos que averiguar cuantas sílabas tiene el adjetivo que queremos usar.

Hay numerosas reglas que tenemos que aprender. Abajo hay una tabla que nos enseña como hacer comparaciones con adjetivos de una sílaba, dos o más sílabas, y adjetivos que acaban en ‘y’.)

One syllable adjective: Adjective + er

Two syllable adjective : More + adjective

One syllable adjective that ends in ‘y’: Adjective minus ‘y’ + ier
