The superlative form

The superlative form of adjective comparison is used to describe an object or phenomenon and the speaker's attitude to them. The form can be simple or complex. For example, the simple form - Это сАмый прекрАсный день! (Eta sAmyi prekrAsnyi dyen'), the complex form which is formed by adding suffixes -ейш- (-eysh) or -айш- (-aysh) Это прекрАснейший день! (Eta prekrAsneyshiy dyen') - This is the most wonderful day!

In the picture:

А Это СахАра. САмый большОй туалЕт в мИре.

(A Eta SakhAra. SAmyi bal'shOy tooalyEt v meerye)

And this is Sahara (the desert).

The biggest toilet in the world.
