    Mas matangkad sya kaysa sa akin. Mas matangkad ako kaysa sa kanya.

    Mas matanda sya kaysa sa akin. Mas matanda ako kaysa sa kanya.

    Mas matalino sya kaysa sa akin. Mas matalino ako kaysa sa kanya.

    Comparative Degree:

    To indicate that one thing is on a higher level than another, Tagalog speakers use the word "mas" and "kaysa/kesa" (than).

    Superlative Degree:

    When comparing things in superlative form. For this, we'll need the prefix "pinaka" and the word "sa." for example . Ako ang pinakamatalino sa klase. ( I am the smartest in the class )
