Using superlatives: ‘biggest’ and ‘tallest’
Why is this important?
The superlative is the form of the adjective or adverb that expresses ‘most’. The superlative indicates that something has some feature to a ‘greater’ or 'lesser’ degree than anything it is being compared with in a given context (e.g. if shown trains of three different lengths – one will be the longest and one will be the shortest). The grammatical marker ‘est’ is used most commonly.
