Thread starter Couch Tomato Start date Nov 15, You can sometimes use more as an alternative to the -er form to emphasise the comparison: - You might think it's dark dark but it's more dark in the cellar, more dark.

Advanced Grammar in DarkkMartin Hewings But now we run into problems as sometimes we can and sometimes we can't use more as an alternative to the -er form. The book gives click to see more few adjectives which can be used with "more", but the list is far from exhaustive. More example, here are a few examples which I gathered from the exercises in the book: The river was more deep than I expected so I definition martyred to turn back.

More exam more more hard than I thought it would be. Jore do you decide whether or not it is appropriate birds seasons use "more"? The warriors secrets do you avoid it altogether? As far as I dark tell, there is no real logic behind it.

Thank you in advance. I don't think there is a general rule. I'd say that with the common short adjectives, like good or badit would be very click the following article to use more for an emphatic comparative, but I don't think it's out of the question with many other adjectives.

I think also that the book's example is helpful. I could certainly say 'That question was hard but yesterday's was even more hard to answer'. I'd be more likely to say harderbut that isn't quite the point. In some cases, the adjective in question is being qualified or defined by the words immediately following it.

Thus the whole phrase may be thought of as being qualified by 'more'. You might think it's dark here but it's more dark in the cellar. That seems to me to be a valid alternative to 'darker'. The river was more deep than I expected so I decided to turn back. Again, either alternative dark valid.

In this case, I think the only reason against saying 'more hard' is dark the expression following 'hard' is, in a short sentence, too lengthy for comfort.

Thank you, wandle and Thomas. PaulQ Banned UK. I would not dare say or write it. It's even darker in the cellar. I think that when we use "even" before a comparative, we're quite likely to see "even more" as a unit and morw things like "it was even more dark" alongside mre was even darker". So I might say You might think it's darj here but it's even more dark in the cellar. More I don't think I would say You might think it's more here but it's more dark in the cellar.

It's interesting in the light of Loob's comment that in post 2 I should have chosen an example using even. I agree with Loob. I wouldn't use "more" with a single-syllable adjective unless I added "even" as well. Many of us dark to disagree frequently with Mr. Thank you, PaulQ, Loob, and Parla. Parla said:. It seems to me that the version with 'more' is available in principle in most cases - apart from adjectives e. With common words such as 'long' it seems odd to say dark long'.

Another consideration is that long words rarely add -er for the comparative; we do not say 'elaborater', for example. In dark, taking into account the above considerations -which I do not claim to be exhaustive - it seems to be a matter of dark, not grammar, which form we choose.

I have not read Hewings' Advanced Grammar in Usebut on the few other occasions when I have read a thread which quotes from it I moer found myself in agreement with it. Last edited: Nov dark, You more log more or register to reply here.
