COMPARATIVE ADJECTIVES 1
Adjetives can be used for comparing nouns.
The comparative mode of any adjective is used for this purpose. The rule for one-syllable adjetives is to add an ER to the end of any adjective:
BIG = BIGGER
TALL = TALLER
Only an R would be added if the adjective ends in E:
NICE = NICER
(we use word THAN to complete our comparative statement)
A night out = um passeio à noite
ele tem um hamburguer = he has a hamburger
torta de maça não é mais fria que sorvete = apple pie ins't colder than ice cream
isso é uma salsicha? = is that a sausage?
vinho é mais gostoso que água = wine is nicer than water
você está com os meus livros? = have you got my books?
nós temos copos e pratos? = have we got glasses and plates?

For adjectives of THREE or MORE SYLLABLES, the following construction will be used:

For two-syllable adjectives not ending in Y, the above rule applies:
CLE-VER = MORE CLEVER
When ending in Y, Y will be changed for I
HA-PPY = HAPPIER
