In English, the superlative and the comparative are created by inflecting adjectives or adverbs. The structure of a superlative consists normally of the positive stem of the adjective or adverb, plus the suffix -est, or (especially in longer words) the modifier "most" or "least" before the adjective or adverb. It always has the definite article and is completed by "of" or other preposition plus one or more nouns of entities that it surpasses to the highest or greatest degree, such as in "he is the tallest of/in the class", or "the town is the most beautiful of all in the country".
Mention should be made also of the elative, if not an actual separate inflection but the intensified degree of adverbs and adjective; e.g. "I am the greatest", or "she is most beautiful". Intensification in these cases means "really great" or "very beautiful indeed", and is usually used without relating it to other persons, things or entities which a normal superlative does.
