    Grammar Lesson I: Comparatives

    When you wish to compare two things using the word more or -er, it is important to remember that you must use only one.

    WRONG: This thread is more prettier.

    CORRECT: This thread is prettier.

    Also, it is important to know whether to use more or -er. If the adjective in question is less than three syllables, you add -er to the end of it. If the adjective is three syllables or more, you place the word more in front of it.

    WRONG: This thread is more pretty.

    CORRECT: This thread is prettier.

    WRONG: This thread is bueatifuler.

    CORRECT: This thread is more beautiful.

    Special Words

    Some words, like good and bad do not follow this rules. For the word good, you would simply say 'better' and for bad, you would say worse. Note: This means neither more or -er will be used.

    WRONG: This thread is more good.

    WRONG: This thread is gooder.

    WRONG: This thread is more better.

    CORRECT: This thread is better.

    More to come.:)
