Degree: degree of comparison

Degree of comparison is typically an inflectional feature of some adjectives and adverbs.

In Bulgarian the comparative and superlative forms are created with the help of the particles по / po “more” and най / nay “most”, which are part of the word and come in preposition, separated by a defice.

Pos: positive, first degree

This is the base form that merely states a quality of something, without comparing it to qualities of others. Note that although this degree is traditionally called “positive”, negative properties can be compared, too.

Examples

Cmp: comparative, second degree

The quality of one object is compared to the same quality of another object.

Examples

Sup: superlative, third degree

The quality of one object is compared to the same quality of all other objects within a set.
