English grammar help: clearer or more clear?

Short online courses with certificate  Anyone who learns English will tell you that it is not the most direct smack in the world. There are a lot of rules for you to learn, but the English language often breaks them. Another area that confuses English language learners is: Comparative Formula / Superior Preference Formula. But don’t worry, we’re here to make things clearer (explained). Or should that be more clear? Our guide will help you find out.

 

Short online courses with certificate  Let’s start by looking at comparison formulas and superlatives.

  • The adjectives compare two things:
  • I am happier now
  • I am happier now.
  • I need a bigger suitcase
  • I need a bigger bag.
  • My sandwich is tastier than yours
  • My sandwich is tastier than yours.
  • Now, the basic rules for creating comparison formulas are:
  • Adjectives with the vowel syllable take ‘-er’ to form comparative forms.
  • Clear> clearer
  • Clear> explained
  • Fit> fitter
  • Suitable> more appropriate
  • Tall> taller
  • Long> longer
  • Bright> brighter
  • Shining> brighter
  • And take ‘-est’ to form superlatives.
  • Clear> clearer> clearest
  • Clear> clearest> clearest
  • Fit> fitter> fittest
  • Suitable> most appropriate> most appropriate
  • Tall> taller> tallest
  • Long> Longest> Longest
  • Bright> brighter> brightest
  • Shining> brighter> brighter

🤓  Short online courses with certificate  Two-syllable adjectives ending with a consonant + y take ‘-ier’ to form comparative forms. 🤑

  • Happy> happier
  • Happy> happier
  • Pretty> prettier
  • Beautiful> most beautiful
  • Hairy> hairier
  • I feel more hairy
  • Lovely> lovelier
  • Grainy> more loving
  • And it takes ‘-iest’ to form superlatives.
  • Happy> happier> happiest
  • Happy> happiest> happiest
  • Pretty> prettier> prettiest
  • Beautiful> the most beautiful> the most beautiful
  • Hairy> hairier> hairiest
  • I feel> hairy> hair
  • Lovely> lovelier> loveliest
  • Lovable> more loving> loved
  • Adjectives consisting of three syllables take ‘more’ to form comparative forms.
  • Incredible> more incredible – not incredibler
  • Amazing> Most Amazing> Most Amazing
  • Horrible> more horrible – not horrible
  • Terrifying> More Scary> Most Scary
  • Terrifying> more terrifying – not terrifyinger
  • Scary> scarier> scary

🔥  Short online courses with certificate  So, clearer or more clear? 💥

The basic rules say that clear is an adjective from one syllable and there is no need to use ‘more’. But the reality is that in everyday use, the two formulas are perfectly acceptable, and most of the time you will hear and see that both are used. Search Google and you will find millions of uses for both.

In fact, it depends on what you personally prefer to choose, and different scenarios may warrant a preference for one over the other. Note that Clearer is more likely to be used in slang conversations:

“Thanks, you’ve helped make it clearer for me”

“Thanks, you helped me make it clearer for me.”

While more clear may be used more formally:

“Thank you, you have helped to make it more clear for me”

“Thank you, you helped me make it clearer to me.”

But clear is a special case. In most examples the rule of thumb applies which states that the one-syllable adjective takes ‘-er’ Short online courses with certificate  while longer adjectives require the addition of ‘more’.

✨  Short online courses with certificate  Rules Caution! More clearer   ⌚   

You have to remember that either you use ‘-er’ or ‘more’ but do not use both. Do not say:

More clearer – clearer is known to mean ‘more clear’, so this would be like saying ‘more more clear’, which is wrong.

More clearest – clearest is known to mean Short online courses with certificate  ‘most clear’, so you cannot get a clearer level than that, and therefore you cannot use ‘more most clear’.
