Desktop 23-01-2018 17-13-08-754

Here’s a grammar bite on comparative structures using ‘adjective+ er/more/less + than’  that we can use when we want to say that two items are different in a quality.

Remember that the general rule for one-syllable and some two-syllable adjectives,  (small, clever, happy, etc.) is the affix -er, while other adjectives  (honest, beautiful, interesting, etc.) have the word ‘more’ in front of them.
