One syllable adjectives usually form the comparative and superlative with –er, and –est: tall – taller – tallest. Adjectives with three or more syllables have more and most: intelligent – more intelligent – most intelligent. With many two-syllable adjectives (e.g. common) both are possible. Nowadays there is a gradual replacement of inflected comparatives and superlatives. ‘Commoner’ used to be ‘commoner’, but ‘more common’ is now ‘more common.’
