danish grammar.
{|

|- align="center" | positive. || comparative. || superlative. |- | ofte, often, || oftere, || oftest. |- | tit, often, || tiere, || tiest. |- | smukt, handsomely, || smukkere, || smukkest. |}

Some adverbs are irregular; as—

gærne, rather, readily, hellere, helst.
vel, well, bedre, bedst.

Some are defective; as—

ude, out, yderst.
... för, before, först.
... mindre, less, mindst.

The latter are used to express diminutive degrees of comparison both for adjectives and other adverbs; as—

smuk, handsome, adj., mindre smuk, mindst smuk.
smukt, handsomely, adv., mindre smukt, mindst smukt.

The superlative of adjectives and adverbs acquires additional force when preceded by aller (all, most, very); as, den aller störste Glæde 'the very greatest joy;' på det aller smukkeste, ' most handsomely.'
