German grammar

Adjective: superlative.

We derive the highest degree of an adjective by adding -st. After d, t, s, ß we add -est-. Sometimes monosyllabic adjectives are pronounced alt - älteste . The adjective of the highest degree is usually preceded by a definite article:

schnell - der schnellste

jung - der jüngste

dunkel - der dunkelste

teuer - der teurerste.
