It is Christmas time and it is time to wish everybody the best. Let's revise then what we know about wishing and the superlatives:
SUPERLATIVES (click here for further information) >>>
- Remember the difference between 'oldest' and 'eldest' (remember: an elderly lady). Although both of them are possible to use for relatives, it is better to say 'My eldest brother works as a civil engineer in New Zealand'.
- Remember the difference between the RELATIVE SUPERLATIVE , that is, a superlative used regarding a specific group (for instance: "He is the tallest boy in the class"), and the ABSOLUTE SUPERLATIVE meaning 'very' and which does not make reference to any specific group (for example: "The book you lent me was most interesting.")
- Finally, after superlatives we use in with places (the longest river in the world) and of for a period of time (the happiest day of my life)
