Superlative Adjectives for Making The Best Sentences

Learn how to make a sentence using a superlative adjective.

Superlative adjectives are for comparing thing with a group of other things.

"Biggest", "Tallest", "Most expensive", and "Best" are all superlative adjectives.

How do you make a sentence? A superlative adjective is just an adjective. So, use the same rule as an adjective.

With An Adjective:

Today was a rainy day.

With A Superlative Adjective:

Today was the rainiest day of the week.

With An Adjective:

When is a good time to come over?

With A Superlative Adjective:

When is the best time to come over?

With An Adjective:

That pencil is long.

With A Superlative Adjective:

That pencil is the longest.

Notice that you always need "the" in front of the superlative adjective.

Also, notice that you don#39;t need a noun. "That pencil is the longest." is correct. Both "He is the nicest." and "He is the nicest guy." are correct.
