User: is the word best a comparative or a superlative?

Weegy: In grammar, the superlative of an adjective or adverb is in 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.

User: what are superlative words for best?

Weegy: Superlative adjectives are used to compare 3 or more nouns or collective nouns. [ When we want to state that something is at the highest or the lowest degree we use superlative adjectives, or in other words that something is the most or something is the least. * I am in the smallest class in the school. * The house at the end of the street is the nicest. It is common that "the" is used before the superlative adjective. * We live in the biggest house on the block. * My brother is the tallest person in our family. ]
