Don’t say: “My new computer is more better than my old one.”
Say: “My new computer is better than my old one.”
Or: “My new computer is much better than my old one.”
Here are the rules for comparative adjectives:
- 1 syllable: fast - faster
- Words ending in Y: easy - easier
- 2+ syllables: popular - more popular
- IRREGULAR: good - better
- IRREGULAR: bad - worse
“Better” is already comparative, so it is not necessary to add “more.” The word “more” is only used with comparative adjectives with 2+ syllables.
“Much” is a quantifier for the comparative – it shows if the difference between the two things is a big difference or a small difference. So if you want to say that the computer is A LOT better, you can say “much better.” Here’s another example:
Candy – $2.00
Ice cream – $2.25
Chocolate cake – $30.00
- The ice cream is a little more expensive than the candy.
(or “slightly more expensive,” or “a bit more expensive”)
- The chocolate cake is much more expensive than the candy.
(or “a lot more expensive,” “far more expensive,” or “way more expensive” – informal)
