Hello learners! :D
On previous post, we have learned about comparative, right?
So now we are going to learn superlative.

Definition : A superlative adjective expresses the extreme or highest degree of a quality. We use a superlative adjective to describe the extreme quality of one thing in a group of things.

In the example below, "biggest" is the superlative form of the adjective "big" :

A is the biggest.

Another example : 

the right one is the tallest 

Forming the superlative :

FormRuleFor example
Words of one syllable ending in "e".
Add -st to the end of the word.
wide - widest
Words of one syllable, with one vowel and one consonant at the end.Double the consonant and add -est to the end of the word.big - biggest
Words of one syllable, with more than one vowel or more than one consonant at the end.Add -est to the end of the word.high - highest
Words of two syllables, ending in "y".Change "y" to "i", and add-est to the end of the word.happy - happiest
Words of two syllables or more, not ending in "y".Place "the most" before the adjective.beautiful - the most beautiful

Take this note : We can use superlative adjectives when talking about three or more things, not two things.
