    I have taught that:

    Adj.____________________ Comp._____________________ Superl.
    Fun.........................................More fun ...................................The most fun (exceptions)


    Funny......................................Funnier.....................................The Funniest

    Is it right?

    So,

    fun-funnier-funniest is NOT correct, is it?
    I see different opinions.

    No it isn't. It was probably a typo (error al teclear).

    fun, more fun, most fun

    funny, funnier, funniest

    Do look at the site I gave you. You can find these answers there.

    don't forget that with the superlative you must always add "the" before the superlative

    fun - more fun - the most fun

    funny - funnier - the funniest

    etc etc etc

    The party was fun, but the party last week was more fun. The party Lauren threw last year was the most fun though.

    Joe is funny, he is even funnier than Jane. In fact, he is the funniest person I know!


    However, if you ever hear "funner" or "funnest", they are not gramatically correct however are used quite often and so they sound fine to me. I guess this is because it is quicker to say a single word during spoken conversation, so shortcuts are taken.

    true but I'd say they're very informal.
