der kleinste VS am kleinsten ? I am quite confused with the use of the superlative in German, sometimes I see it as simply adding the "ste" at the end of the adjective, and some other times with "am" + "sten" !! Does it have to do with the position of the adjective, whether it comes before or after the noun? Thanks for answering.

Das ist der kleinste Hund. This is the smallest dog. Dieser Hund ist am kleinsten. This dog is the smallest. The 'am' is used when there is no noun (object).
