Adjectives and adverbs exhibit a positive state, which simply shows the attribute expressed by the adjective (hot) or adverb (quickly). If the adjective or adverb seeks to show that something has more of the attribute expressed, we use the comparative state (hotter, more quickly). If the adjective or adverb seeks to show the utmost of the attribute expressed, we use the superlative state (hottest, most quickly).
