Comparative and Superlative Adverbs

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


Some adverbs have irregular comparative forms.
