How can I use much and more to modify adjectives? That’s a great question and I’m so excited to bring you this one-point English lesson to help you out.
You can use much followed by an adjective with one-syllable in the comparative form:
- Danny is much taller than Greg. (tall…taller)
- I bought a house that is much older than my parent’s house. (old…older)
You can use much followed by a y-ending adjective in the comparative form:
- In general, Indian curry is much spicier that Japanese curry. (spicy…spicier)
- My grandmother says that young people in her generation were much happier than young people these days. (happy…happier)
You can use much more followed by an adjective with two or more syllables in the comparative form:
- Sushi in New York is much more expensive than sushi in Tokyo.
- A cold shower is much more invigorating than a hot shower.
