  • Hello, and welcome to today's Grammar Gameshow!

  • I'm your host, Will!

  • This is my game show.

  • There are many like it, but this one is mine.

  • And of course let's not forget Leslie,

  • our all-knowing voice in the sky.

  • Hello, everyone!

  • Tonight, we're going to ask you three questions about

  • Comparatives!

  • Those useful words and expressions

  • for measuring one thing against another!

  • OK! Now, let's meet our contestants!

  • Hello, all.

  • My name's Selene!

  • And contestant number two?

  • It's nice to meet you. I'm June!

  • Great!

  • Nice to see you again, Selene.

  • How are you feeling?

  • I'm doing OK.

  • Why?

  • Well, you knowthat...

  • tragic accident that happened to Mark.

  • Oh, Mark!

  • Why? Why?

  • Well, just don't think about him, and you'll be fine.

  • It's only true love,

  • it's not that important.

  • OK. Let's get going,

  • and don't forget

  • you can play along at home too.

  • Now, our first round is a grid round.

  • Look at this grid and choose a number.

  • Then use the revealed word to make a comparative

  • about someone in this room.

  • Are you ready?

  • On your marks

  • Oh!

  • Sorry!

  • I shouldn't have said that!

  • Selene, you can go first.

  • I'll have number three, please.

  • Brainless!

  • Oh

  • Oh, my

  • Will is

  • June is more brainless than I am.

  • Correct!

  • Ouch!

  • June!

  • Time for revenge! Choose a number.

  • I'll take number one.

  • Fat!

  • Selene is fatter than me.

  • Correct!

  • Are you going to take that?

  • Quick, choose a number!

  • I choose six.

  • Ugly!

  • June is uglier than I am.

  • Correct!

  • How dare she!

  • She's gone mad with grief!

  • Go on, get her back!

  • I'll choose number two, please.

  • Bad!

  • Selene is a worse person than I am.

  • Correct!

  • Don't we all know it.

  • That's why Mark left.

  • Don't think about him, Selene!

  • Number four!

  • Handsome.

  • Will

  • is handsomer than everyone

  • Correct!

  • That's the kind of spirit we need.

  • except

  • Mark.

  • Whoa!

  • Factually incorrect there.

  • Minus 1 point.

  • Leslie?

  • Comparatives are adjectives

  • that allow us to compare two or more things.

  • To make one, modify an adjective.

  • If it has one syllable, add 'ER'.

  • If it has two syllables, it may take 'ER' or 'more' or both!

  • Check a dictionary.

  • If it has three syllables or greater, we add 'more'.

  • Lastly,

  • the third type is irregular, such as 'good' and 'bad'.

  • And don't forget to use 'than'!

  • Well done! Twenty points each,

  • minus the one Selene lost.

  • I'll just mark that down.

  • Oh sorry

  • poor choice of words.

  • On to our second round,

  • one syllable and

  • two syllable adjectives ending in 'Y',

  • change their spelling when they become comparatives.

  • Which of these comparative spelling rules is incorrect?

  • Basic adjective + 'ER'

  • Ends in 'E': + 'R'

  • Ends in vowel consonant:

  • Double consonant + 'ER'

  • Ends in 'Y':

  • Change 'Y' to 'I' + 'ER'

  • I don't seem to remember C.

  • I think that one is incorrect

  • Sorry. That's wrong, I'm afraid.

  • I'm going to have to give you a black mark.

  • Oh! Sorry! Sorry!

  • I put my foot in my mouth again.

  • June?

  • This is a trick question.

  • All of the rules are correct.

  • Well done, June!

  • You've beat Selene!

  • That's bound to leave a mark.

  • Oh!

  • Sorry!

  • Faux pas!

  • Faux pas!

  • Leslie?

  • Excellent, June.

  • One syllable and two syllable adjectives ending in 'Y',

  • change their spelling when they become comparatives.

  • We add 'ER' to the basic adjectives.

  • If the adjective ends in 'E', we only add 'R'.

  • If it ends in a single vowel followed by a consonant,

  • we double the consonant and add 'ER'.

  • Finally,

  • if the adjective ends in 'Y',

  • we replace the 'Y' with an 'I' and add 'ER'.

  • Well done, June. Three points for you.

  • You're doing quite well.

  • Do you think you'll win?

  • Oh, I will.

  • Mark my words.

  • I'll have to mark that one down.

  • Oopssorry, sorry!

  • OK. On to our last round.

  • Comparatives are not just able

  • to communicate a difference,

  • but also how much of a difference exists.

  • I'm going to show you some comparatives

  • and I want to know if there's a big difference,

  • small difference,

  • or no difference at all.

  • Here we go:

  • Mark is as nice as Mark.

  • No difference.

  • Correct!

  • Wow, June.

  • That was quick off the mark. Whoopsie!

  • Here's the next one:

  • Mark is twice as handsome as Mark.

  • No.

  • Sorry, you're well off the mark there.

  • Big difference.

  • Correct!

  • Mark is a little bit less interesting than Mark.

  • Small difference.

  • Correct!

  • Last one:

  • Mark is nothing like as cool as Mark.

  • Mark!

  • Big difference

  • Lesliecan we?

  • Well done!

  • Comparative and comparative structures

  • can be modified to include

  • the size of the difference being illustrated.

  • Words like 'much',

  • 'not as…',

  • 'nowhere near as…',

  • 'a bit'

  • and 'asas…' are useful here!

  • Well done, June! Six points for you.

  • And that brings us to the end of today's

  • Grammar Gameshow.

  • And the winner is

  • Selene!

  • Well...

  • we could hardly send you

  • 'home'.

  • Not when you're being so much fun!

  • Besides, you're too easy a mark.

  • Whoops!

  • Here's what you've won!

  • It's a permanent marker!

  • So you can mark down the days

  • since you lost your love.

  • Oh, I love you Leslie.

  • We'll see you again next week,

  • where you can play for another prize.

  • And June?

  • You played well

  • and really tried to make your markwhoops!

  • But it wasn't meant to be.

  • That's not fair.

  • Just because she's heart-broken

  • Release the dolphins!

  • Some people just have no empathy!

  • Isn't that right, Mark?

  • It looks like we'll need another contestant.

  • Thanks for joining us.

  • Say goodbye, Leslie.

  • Hoşça kal, Leslie.

  • See you next time.
