German : Comparison of adjectives
1. German uses the -er, -(e)st method, and NEVER employ mehe or meist for this purpose
neu, neuer, der neuste
2. the comparative and superlative forms decline exactly like simple adjectives, but we give the superlative form with a " der" because it never in fact occurs on its own.
3. the optional " e" in the superlative end is used with adjectives whose positive form ends in -d , -t, -s, -sch, -ß, or -z.
rund (round ), der rundeste
bunt , det bunteste
4. adjectives ending in " -el" drop the " e" in the comparative, BUT NOT in the superlative
dunkel (dark), dunkler, der dunkelste.
edel (noble), deler, der edelste
