Worse and worst are often misused in the English language. Here is a simple definition describing when to use them correctly.

Worse: Use worse to compare two things. Think of it like better only in the negative instead of the positive.

Example: My husband’s singing is worse than mine.

Worst: Use worst when one thing is inferior to something else. Think of worst like best, only in the negative.

Example: My husband has the worst singing voice in the world.

***Note: My husband really doesn’t have the worst voice, he just has the worst time remembering the correct lyrics to songs, which is worse.
