    Самый Лучше

    This was given as an answer in my book for the superlative of хороший. Is this correct, and if it is, are there any more of this type?

    наибольший - the biggest
    наименьший - the smallest
    наивысший - the tallest
    наихудший - the worst

    I was just surprised by your question because your teacher should have gone over that??

    What teacher? I'm on my own.

    I was just struck by the superlative being formed by the Самый + the comparitive form, rather than Самый + the adjective form. I was wondering if if was unique to хороший, or if a broader generalization could be made.

    You can use Самый with any adjective to form the superlative.
    There are other ways, but this is the easiest.
    Good luck!

    самый лучший is correct = the very best, the best.

    самый лучше is not grammatical.
