Comparison Using Comparative Adjectives And Adverbs


To say that people, things etc are unequal in a particular way, we can use comparative adjectives/adverbs.

In an informal style, object pronouns are used after than. In a more formal style, subject pronouns are used usually with verbs.

We can use double comparatives (…er and …er or more and more …) to say that something is changing.

The + comparative expression + subject + verb

We can use comparatives with the … the … to say that things change or vary together. Note the word order in both clauses.

More can be used with a noun in this structure.
