Spelling patterns this week: comparative adjectives
Relevant spelling guidelines:
- For one-syllable words, add –er or –est.
- When the pattern of the word is CVC* then we double the consonant before –er or –est.
- For 2 syllable adjectives ending in –y, change the –y to an i
- We use ‘more’ or ‘most’ for words with 2+ syllables not ending in y. We don’t change the spelling of the word! For example, famous – more famous; interesting – more interesting, carefully – more carefully
