Comparisons: Using Modifiers in your Comparisons
Once we know how to make comparisons in English, we can add more detail by using a modifier. Modifiers create better descriptions and add more colour to your English. Watch this video to find out more.
Which Modifiers to Use?
Use these modifiers when you want to describe a big difference between subjects:
- a lot
- way *
These modifiers are used when the difference between the two subjects is not too big:
- a bit
- a little
These modifiers explain that there is practically no difference between the subjects:
- exactly the same
- more or less the same
- roughly the same
- pretty much the same
* These words are more informal.
