I. Gradele de comparatie

pozitiv = adjectivul nu se schimba

comparativ  - de inferioritate (2.1.)

- de egalitate (2.2.)

- de superioritate (2.3.)

superlativ - relativ (3.1.)

- absolut (3.2.)

2.1. Comparativ de inferioritate

pt adj scurte (mono si bisilabice) se formeaza din:

not so/not as + adj + as

Ex:   This room is not so big as the bedroom.


This room is not as big as the bedroom.

pt adj lungi se formeaza:

less + adj + than

Ex:   The chair is less comfortable than the bed.

2.2. Comparativ de egalitate

Atat pt adj scurte cat si pt lungi:

as + adj + as

Ex: The bed is as good as the chair.

Ideea de egalitate mai poate fi sugerata si prin constructia:

the same + subst + as

as si nu like !!!

Ex: This room is the same size as the other one.

Schimbare de valoare gramaticala

Adjectiv Substantiv

big, small size (masura)

long, short length (lungime)

broad, narrow breadth (largime pt ceva concret)

wide, narrow width (largime pt ceva abstract)

high, low height (inaltime)

deep, shallow depth (adancime)

heavy, light weight (greutate)

strong, weak strength (putere)....etc.

Constructii cu comparativul de egalitate:

as brave as a lion; as blind as a bat; as black as coal; as busy as a bee; as cool as a cucumber; as clear as daylight; as dry as a bone; as easy as ABC; as fresh as a daisy; as hairy as a gorilla; as mad as a hatter (palarier); as poor as a church-mouse; as silent as a grave; as wise as Solomon; as soft as silk; as smooth as grass; as gentle as a lamb...etc.

2.3. Comparativul de superioritate

- pt adj scurte

adj + er + than

Modificari ortografice:

daca adj se termina in "e", se adauga doar "r"

Ex: nice - nicer

daca adj se termina in "y" precedat de consoana, se transforma "y" in "ier"

Ex: pretty - prettier

Exceptii: shy - shyer

sly - slyer

wry - wryer (stramb)

3) daca adj se termina in consoana precedata de vocala, dublez consoana finala

Ex: big - bigger

- pt adj lungi

more + adj + than

Ex: The book is more interesting than the movie.

Adj provenite din latina sunt urmate de "to" si nu de "than"

Ex: He is superior to me.

3.1. Superlativul relativ

the + adj +est

Ex:   large - the largest

silly - the silliest

Modificarile ortografice sunt la fel.

Pentru adj lungi:

the most+ adj

Ex: This is the most expensive thing.

dupa superlativ urmeaza prepozitiile "of" sau "in"

Ex: He is the best of all/the best in my group.

daca se face comparatie intre 2 elemente, comparativul implica superlativul:

the + comparativ

Ex: Between you and me, I am the older.

3.2. Superlativul absolut

very + adj

very poate fi inlocuit cu: extremely




nu toate adj au grad de comparatie, unele definesc ideea de unitate (own, complete, proper, perfect, marvelous, maximum, minimum).

Altele au sufixe si prefixe:

extra - large

over - crowded

super - fine

ultra - short


Comparatia neregulata

good - better - the best

bad - worse - the worst

ill - worse - the worst

many - more - the most

much - more - the most

little - less - the least

near - nearer - the nearest (cel mai apropiat); next (urmatorul)

far - farther - the farthest (in spatiu)

far - further - the furthest (in timp)

late - later - the latest; the last (ultimul); the latter (ult din 2)

Dintre 2, primul este "the former", nu "the first".

up - upper - the upmost

in - inner - the inmost

out - outer - the outmost

fore - former - the foremost

old - older - the oldest

old - elder - the eldest (doar atributiv, pt membrii aceleiasi familii)

Ex: My elder brother is older than me. (fratele meu mai mare)

Constructii adjectivale

cu mult mai = much/ a lot + comparativ

Ex: It is much warmer today / a lot warmer today

de departe cel mai = by far + superlativ

Ex: This is by far the hottest day of the year.

din ce in ce mai = comp + and + comp

Ex: It is warmer and warmer

pt adj lungi se repeta doar "more"

Ex: It is more and more interesting.

cu cat mai,. cu atat mai. (the + comparativ .the + comparativ)

Expresia e obligatoriu sa se repete identic si verbul "to be" lipseste:

Ex: The more, the better (cu cat mai mare, cu atat mai bine)

Mai multe adjective care determina acelasi substantiv se despart prin virgula. Daca nu apare virgula intre ele atunci cel care nu este urmat de virgula este adverb.

Ordinea adjectivelor care determina un substantiv va tine cont de cele subiective (primele expuse) si de cele obiective (imediat langa substantiv).

Un adjectiv poate sa determine si un verb. Verbul va fi obligatoriu "to be" sau orice alt verb de perceptie care poate fi inlocuit cu "to be".

Ex:   I am intelligent

He looks happy sau He is happy.

Adjectivul demonstrativ

anuleza articolul substantivului

invariabil ca forma (M/F)

se aseaza in fata substantivului pe care il determina

daca nu determina un substantiv devine pronume demonstrativ

"this" - aceasta, acesta (singular apropiere)

"these" - acestea, acestia (plural apropiere)

ambele merg cu "here".

"that" - acela, aceea (singular departare)

"those" - acelea, aceia (plural departare)

ambele merg cu "there".

Indepartarea in spatiu presupune si indepartarea in timp. Deci "that" si "those" se vor cupla cu trecutul.

Ex:   This book is good. (this = adjectiv, book = substantiv)

This is a good book. (this = pronume)

Adjectivul posesiv

invariabil ca forma si numar

anuleaza articolul substantivului

se aseaza in fata substantivului pe care-l determina

forme: my, your, his, her, its, our, your, their

Ex: My book.

Adjectivul interogativ

pozitie initiala in propozitie

invariabil ca forma

anuleaza articolul

determina un substantiv

forme: what, which, whose, how much, how many.

Which presupune selectie dintr-un numar limitat.

Ex: Which boy is your best friend?

What nu presupune selectie.

Ex: What days of the week do you know?

Diferenta how much / how many

How much presupune cantitatea si se foloseste pentru substantive nenumarabile.

Ex: How much money do you want?

How many inseamna numar si se foloseste la substantive numarabile.

Ex: How many books do you want?

Adjectivul relativ
