Subject + verb + comparative adjective + than + object

OR

Subject + verb + comparative adjective + noun + than + object

Use "than + object" pattern to specify the object you are comparing to.

Subject + verb + comparative adjective + than + object

OR

Subject + verb + comparative adjective + noun + than + object

Example sentences:

  • This book is more interesting than that book.

What is a Syllable?

A syllable is basically a unit of sound.

A syllable has 1 vowel sound, and it may or may not have a consonant sound.

Listen to these words, carefully.

  • American -

  • Angry -

  • Attention -

  • Bicycle -

  • Busy -

  • Canadian -

  • Careful -

  • Clean -

  • Determined -

  • Expensive -

  • Hungry -

  • Important -

  • Little -

  • Mindful -

  • Never -

  • Sad -

  • Scrawny -

  • Shocked -

  • Timely -

  • Timely -

  • Ugly -

For example, "Scrawny" has 2 syllables. "Scraw" has the "aw" vowel sound, and "ny" has the "ee" vowel sound. "Scr" part is the consonants, so by itself, it's not a syllable.

Another example is "Timely". It has 2 syllables. "Time" part has the "i" vowel sound and "ly" part has the "ee" vowel sound. "me" is almost silent, so by itself, it's not a syllable.
