Formation
quickinfo

The superlative, like the comparative, can be formed in two ways, that is, by attaching a suffix to the adjective or by putting a word in front of it. It can be formed morphologically, by the addition of the morpheme –st, as in yntelligent-stmost intelligent or it can be formed periphrastically, by the addition of the word meastmost, as in meast yntelligintmost intelligent.
