Absolute Adjectives List

The Absolute Adjectives cannot vary in intensity or grade and have a quality that can't be compared. Examples: complete, dead

It is said they are non-gradable and they do not normally have comparative and superlative forms.

If something is complete then this is an absolute quality. It can't be more complete. This is impossible. If a person is dead, he can't be more dead. Dead is dead and that's it.

Some Adjectives can be gradable and non-gradable depending on how they are used.(old, common) Example: He is a very old man.(gradable) Last week I bought this old house. (non-gradable)
