How to make comparative adjectives?
- remove the last vowel and add “-szy” at the end
eg. gruby – grubszy
- if the adjective has two consonants before the last vowel, then remove the vowel and add “-iejszy” eg. ładny – ładniejszy
- if the adjective ends in “-ki”, “-oki”, “-eki” remove this endings and then add “-szy”
eg. szeroki – szerszy
- some adjectives are long or just difficult to change. Then just use “bardziej” before them eg. interesujący – bardziej interesujący
- Uwaga! Some adjectives will have irregular forms and some will have alternations of consonants or vowels!
