  • Nor, at the other end of the scale, can we match the Spanish superlative suffix - ísimo , e.g., grandísimo, altísimo, bellísimo (rendered in English as the `biggest,' the `highest,' the `most beautiful,' although for an exact equivalency one would use the other superlative form in Spanish, más grande, más alto, más bello ).
