I propose a computational treatment of su- perlatives, starting with superlative con- structions and the main challenges in automatically recognising and extracting their components. Initial experimental evi- dence is provided for the value of the pro- posed work for Question Answering. I also briefly discuss its potential value for Sen- timent Detection and Opinion Extraction.
