Hey @ghost, etc. The “more clear” construction has multiple meanings depending on vocal inflection.
“Your answer is more clear than mine” doesn’t convey the same meaning as “Your answer is clearer than mine.”
Ain’t English grand?!
now do ‘their’, ‘there’ & ‘they’re’ 🙂
hey @ uncle Al – How about fair?
Is it Fairer or more fair?
Even more worse?
Is it worser or way more worse? More worse than?
Yes you are correct English is grand…
… and than and then!
Oh I love English and I love grammar!
I’m a total grammar and punctuation geek and I bet I’m not alone here!
I feel like I’ve mentioned this recently here too, the story of the panda who eats, shoots and leaves. (Or is it that he eats shoots and leaves? 😀 )
My grammar was a typical white woman.
Grammar aside, there is not one bit of evidence Joe is a Pedo…oh wait.
Well that’s it then, I can stop using “yer” now…
You’re your yours.
Hey Caudia, I forgot my period about 20 years ago…don’t miss the monthly event.
I like the meme…. but one of my biggest peeves is “there’s” in place of “there are”. It is spoken everywhere these days.
As stated above, do not forget the importance of punctuation, i.e., I was helping Uncle Jack off the horse. No comma between Uncle and Jack….

… it’s late in the thread, but I would be remiss if I did not bring up the story of a mental patient who got loose, raped a nurse, then ran away from the asylum. It only becomes pertinent to this thread when I mention that the headline it was given was “NUT SCREWS AND BOLTS”.
