The superlative of comparison does not differ from the predicative form of that of the adj. with am: am fd)6nflen: as, er fd)ret&r am fd)6nften, i. e. fd)oner alS anbre/ he writes most beautifully, i. e. more beautifully than others; er rebete mid) am freunblieh= ften an, i.e.freunblid)er alSanbere, he addressed me most friendly, i. e. more friendly than others; id) Wat am t)6d)ften erfreuet, i. e. t)bi)Cx ali anbere, I was most highly rejoiced, i. e. more highly than others. The superlative of eminence is either the superlative in its original form, freunblid)ft, f)6d)ft, or that form, preceded by the preposition auf/ and the definite article baS contracted into aufS, with the termination of the acc. neuter in the 2nd form of inflection: as, er rebete mid) bSflid)ft an, or er rebete mid) aufS t?6f= lid)fte ait/ he addressed me most politely, i. e. with the greatest politeness; id) grtife (c)te freunblid)ft, or aufS freunblid)fle, I send you my most friendly compliments. This superlative, however, is also produced by putting b6d)ft or auferft before the adverb: id) rourbe auferft freunblid) oon ibm empfangen,1 was received by him in an extremely friendly manner; er f ommt auperft felten ju mir, he comes very seldom to me; er betragt fid) t)6d)ft artig gegen mid), he behaves very politely towards me. Note.--The termination enS is added to the original form of the superlative of several words, to express the superlative of eminence: as, t)6d)ftenS, at the highest; meiftenS, at most; rcenigftene, at least; fpateftenS, at the latest. The following are irregular: --25alb, soon; comp. etjer, sup. am et)eften. (c)em, willingly;--lieber, --am liebften. 23iel, much;-mebr, --am meiften. SSenig
