Learn about Superlative Adjectives
You should look at the comparative adjectives lesson before you study superlative adjectives.

How to make Superlative Adjectives
Add est to one-syllable adjectives. If it ends in e, just add st. If it ends in vowel + consonant, add consonant + est.
If the adjective ends in y, remove the y and add iest.
If the adjective has two or more syllables, add most.
