Comparative and Superlative Adverbs

With adverbs ending in -ly, use more for the comparative and most for the superlative.

Adverb----Comparative----Superlative
happily---more happily---most happily
quietly---more quietly---most quietly
seriously - more seriously - most seriously

For short adverbs comparative and superlative forms are the same as for adjectives: add -er for the comparative and -est for the superlative. If the adverb ends in e, remove it before adding the ending.

Adverb---Comparative---Superlative
hard-----harder--------hardest
early----earlier-------earliest
fast-----faster--------fastest

Some adverbs have irregular comparative forms.

Adverb----Comparative----Superlative
badly-----worse----------worst
far----farther/further--farthest/furthest
little----less-----------least
well------better---------best
