Degrees of comparison



We use Degrees of Comparison to compare people, places or things. An adjective can have one of three forms: Positive, Comparitive or Superlative. For example, for the adjective "big" the Positive form would be "big" itself, the Comparitive form would be "bigger" and the Superlative form would be "biggest".

In Turkish, we express the Comparitive form using "daha" and the Superlative form using "en". For example, for the adjective "büyük" the Positive form would be "büyük" itself, the Comparitive form would be "daha büyük" and the Superlative form would be "en büyük".
