Adjectives tell you the quality of a person, place, or thing
As pretty girl, big city, fast horse, golden ring.
Some adjectives increase their strength
By going on to greater length:
As pretty when you’re positive she’s fair,
But prettier whenever you compare,
And see a second more exquisite face
Among the members of the human race.
But prettiest is where you reach the top—
Superlative—and there you have to stop.
