Use of The Double Superlative



Use of The Double Superlative :




While comparing two or more objects, one should avoid using the double comparative/superlative.


Very often we tend to do this believing that it lends additional emphasis to what is being said.


The very word comparative means that two objects are being weighed against one another, while the superlative is used to refer to what is the best among the things being compared.


For example :


Use of the comparative :


'He is much better than me' is correct.


'He is much more better than me' is incorrect.


'He ran faster than his friend' is correct.


'He ran very much faster than his friend' is incorrect.


'She is much taller than her boyfriend' is correct.


'She is much more taller than her boyfriend' is incorrect.


Use of the superlative :


'He is the best teacher from my school' is correct.


'He is the most best teacher from my school' is incorrect.


'That is the slowest car' is correct.


'That is the most slowest car' is incorrect.


'That is the biggest apple ever grown in this farm' is correct.


'That is the most biggest apple ever grown in this farm' is incorrect.
