Com 155

I need to know if I have found the errors for an assignment. Thanks!

I put the corrections in parenthesis.

Comparative forms of superlative adjectives:
Since 1995, the third week in April has been TV-Turnoff week. A not-for-profit group in Washington, D.C., came up with the most interestingest (interesting) idea. Studies show that the averagest (average) person watches four hours of TV a day. The TV-Turnoff people say sitting in front of the boob tube is worst than just about anything else. It is terrible for your physical health, and it is more terrible (terrible) for your social relationships. But it is most terriblest (terrible) for your mind. There are many more better (better) things to do. For instance, put on those dusty tennis shoes and ride that more dustier (dusty) bike. Bake cookies with your kids. That would be most enjoyable than watching re-runs and certainly not watching TV.

    Are you clear on what comparatives and superlatives are??

    yes, large, larger, largest...I need your help to see if I found the inncorrect adjectives. If they are wrong can you help me? Please...

    There is no such thing as a comparative form of a superlative adjective!!

    These passages need correcting:

    ~~is worst than just about anything else
    ~~That would be most enjoyable than watching

    I'm not sure what you think the final phrasing should be here:
    ~~it is more terrible (terrible)

    I hope you plan to delete the word "more" in both places here:
    ~~more better (better) things to do. For instance, put on those dusty tennis shoes and ride that more dustier (dusty) bike
