Vocabulary (ex. 7)
Phrasal verbs are:
used in informal spoken and written language
three-part phrasal verbs ( e.g. to get away with) are never separated. e.g. He got away with murder.
two-part phrasal verbs containing an adverb have a flexible word order when used with a noun object. If the object is a pronoun; it always comes between the verb and the adverb. e.g. I tried on the red jacket / I tried the red jacket on - I tried it on

Degrees of comparison
There are three degrees of comparison:
equality (as... as...)
Slide 17 - Tekstslide
Adjectives of one syllable:
Small – smaller – smallest
Mind the spelling of words with that end in a vowel+single consonant (short sound):
Slide 18 - Tekstslide
Adjectives of two syllables
Adjectives of two syllables ending in a consonant + -y:
Simple – simpler-simplest / simple – more simple – most simple
Other examples: clever, common, cruel, gentle, likely, narrow, pleasant, polite
Slide 19 - Tekstslide
Adjectives of two or more syllables
Other two-syllable adjectives and adjectives of three or more syllables don't get -er/-est. They get more/most: beautiful – more beautiful – most beautiful
Irregular adjectives of comparison (learn these by heart):
good – better – best
bad – worse – worst
far – farther/further – farthest (distance only) /furthest
old – older/elder – oldest/eldest (family relationship only)

Adverb of degree
You can put an adverb of degree (bijwoord van gradatie) in front of a comparative adjective or a superlative adjective. There are different ones you have to use though:
a bit, a great deal, a good deal, a little, a lot, much, rather, slightly - are used for comparitive adjectives (-er/more):
The potatoes are slightly more expensive than last year.
Since the summer, my brother has become a good deal taller than my dad.
by far, easily, much, quite - are used for superlative adjectives (-est/most)
John is by far the most intelligent pupil in the school.
Dimash is easily the best singer in the world right now, don't you think?
Slide 23 - Tekstslide
Comparative and superlative adverbs
We can also use adverbs in comparisons. You can recognize adverbs normally by the -ly added at the end of the word (commonly, frequently, usually, readily, easily). Adverbs tell you something about a verb (most common use), adjective or another adverb.
Adverb – comparative adverb – superlative adverb
Frequently – more frequently – most frequently
Rabbits are seen more frequently than hares.
Slide 24 - Tekstslide
Irregular adverbs of comparison:
badly – worse – worst
close – closer – closest
early – earlier – earliest
far – farther/further – farthest/ furthest
fast – faster – fastest
hard – harder – hardest
near – nearer – nearest
well – better – best
Slide 25 - Tekstslide
Rewrite sentences a-f, keeping the same meaning, but using another form of the comparative. Start with the same object, don't change it.
Example: I’m worse at remembering faces than I am at remembering names.
I’m not as good at remembering faces as I am at remembering names.
a. My best friend drives more slowly than I do.
b. The weather is cooler in the autumn.
