Answer:

Question:

What is the comparative?

Inactive
Kristin B.
Answer:

We use the comparative to compare things, by modifying adjectives. For short adjectives (2 syllables or fewer) we add "-er" to the adjective. E.g. The dog is smaller than the horse. - "small" has 1 syllable, it is short, so we add "-er". For long adjectives, such as "attractive", we don't do this. Instead, we add "more" before the adjective. E.g. She was more attractive than her husband. - "attractive" has 3 syllables, it is long, so we use "more". We never use "more" and "er" together. Sometimes the spelling can change, e.g. consonants can be doubled (big -> bigger) or "y" changes to "i" (funny -> funnier).

Question:

When should I use "less" and when should I use "fewer"?

Answer:

"Less" is used for non-countable nouns, e.g. milk, water, flour, bread, love, war. "Fewer" is used for countable nouns, e.g. grapes, slices of pizza, people, cats, arguments. A trick is, if the noun ends in "s", it's countable. Although, there are exceptions, such as "people", which is still a plural.
