In grammar, the superlative of an adjective or adverb is the greatest form of the adjective or adverb. This indicates that something has at least one feature to a greater degree than anything it is being compared to in a given context. Some grammarians object to the use of the superlative or comparative with words such as full, complete, unique, or empty, which by definition already denote either a totality, an absence, or an absolute. However, such words are routinely and frequently qualified in contemporary speech and writing. This type of usage conveys more of a figurative than a literal meaning, since in a strictly literal sense, something cannot be more or less unique or empty to a greater or lesser degree. For example, in the phrase "most complete selection of wines in the Midwest," "most complete" doesn't mean "closest to having all elements represented", it merely connotes a well-rounded, relatively extensive selection. Browsing the Internet with some of the best known search engines for "more complete" or "most complete" establishes the frequency of this usage with millions of examples. Nonetheless, frequency of usage is an extremely debatable criterion for correctness. In formal writing, particularly scientific or legal, incorrect use of superlatives is a grave error.

In English

In English, the superlative and the comparative are created by inflecting adjectives or adverbs. The structure of a superlative consists normally of the positive stem of the adjective or adverb, plus the suffix -est, or (especially in words of a Latin or Romance origin) the modifier "most" or "least" before the adjective or adverb. It always has the definite article and is completed by "of" or another preposition plus one or more mehr
