文字稿

Hi, I’m Roy and today I’m going to tell you about using comparatives to say that someone or something is changing or developing.

So, the structure is like this:

Comparative + and + the same comparative.

So we put the ‘and’ in the middle of the two comparative adjectives.

Every year, I look older and older.

Don’t forget that with adjectives of two or more syllables, like ‘beautiful’, we use the word ‘more’ + an adjective to make the comparative. We don’t add ‘–er’.

With these, we add the ‘and’ in the middle of the two ‘more’s, for example:

Every day, my wife Luciana gets more and more beautiful.

Anyway, that’s everything for today. I’m getting hungrier and hungrier, so I’ve got to go. Bye.

用法總結

1. 我們可以使用 「形容詞比較級 + and + 重複該形容詞比較級」 的結構來表達 「越來越……」。

  • Every year, I look older and older.
  • I’m getting hungrier and hungrier.
  • These trees will continue to grow bigger and bigger.

2. 有兩個或以上音節的形容詞比較級通常為 「more + 形容詞原形」。在這種情況下,我們用 「more + and + more + 形容詞」 的結構來表達 「越來越……」。

  • Every day, my wife Luciana gets more and more beautiful.
  • I found the show more and more interesting as time went on.
