Recall from a previous lesson some examples of comparatives and superlatives: Tú eres más alto que yo. You are taller than I. Juan es el chico más inteligente de la clase. John is the smartest boy in the class. The following adjectives have irregular forms for the comparative and the superlative: Adjective: bueno (good) Comparative: mejor (better) Superlative: el/la mejor (best) Adjective: malo (bad) Comparative: peor (worse) Superlative: el/la peor (the worst) Note that the words más and menos are not used with the irregular comparatives.
