Adjectives are words that change nouns and pronouns. You know that adjectives are 'describing' words. Adjectives also allow us to compare people or objects. For example: My dog is big, but that dog is bigger. 'Bigger' is a comparative adjective. 'Biggest' is a superlative adjective - it would be used if we were comparing more than two dogs. The endings '-er' and '-est' can be added to most adjectives, but there are a few exceptions to the rule.
