    largest in Lingvo

    It can be наибольший or самый большой or even something else. Depending on the context.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Is there an equivalent of:
    big, bigger, biggest
    large, larger, largest?

    большой - больший - наибольший (самый большой)
    крупный - более крупный - крупнейший (самый крупный, наикрупнейший)

    also you can use the word величайший as the largest, the biggest
    Я так думаю.

    largest in Lingvo
    Thanks for the Lingvo online site. Didn't know there was one. Have been using the PC version all this while. I guess the online one is more up to date.
