We like fun words. Fun, kind of made up, words.
Who decided we went from good to better to best, anyway.
When gooder and goodest sound maybe better than better and best.
And lets not forget betterer.... or betterererer....
(Kid Four got carried away with those er's at the end one day... it stuck)
And then we go from bad to worse to worst.
When badder and baddest doesn't sound quite as bad as worse or worst.
And more and most, I originally thought, were saved for those big words that you can't add er or est.
Like extravagant.... extravaganter... extravagantest.... hmmmmm......
But we use them for fun. A short, little word.
But really, who doesn't like fun, funner and funnest.
This is a conversation we always have when the Kids revisit the comparative and superlative forms of words in their Grammar lessons.
And we constantly make up words along the way.
Yes, we homeschool, but really... can't we have fun? Fun with words. Fun with any part of it.
Let's have some fun and make all our days a little funner.
Have a good day!!
