An adjective is a word that describe a thing (person, animal etc). The Color, shape or size of something are examples of adjectives.

Comparison rules in Swedish describes the inflections of both Attributive adjectives and Predicative adjectives. (See examples below).

We will here concentrate on Comparison examples, (such as: young, younger, youngest etc.) Remark that not all adjectives in Swedish can be compared.

In some languages adverbs are related to adjectives in different levels. We will not learn the differences here, other than that there are differences in the Swedish language.

In many cases (almost all), you could say that English words ending with -est, is equal to Swedish words ending with -st (Superlative), and the Comparative form: English -er is in Swedish ending with -re.

Attributive example - En ny bil. (A new car).

Predicative example - Bilen var ny. (The car was new).

Example of Positive form - Ny. (New).

Example of Comparative form - Nyare. (Newer).

Example of Superlative form - Nyast. (Newest).
