The term comparative refers to that form of an adjective or an adverb which is constructed either with –er or with more and which serves to express a higher degree of the quality denoted by the base word.
Examples are: bigger from big, worse from bad, more beautiful from beautiful and more carefully from carefully.
English also has a comparative of inferiority, constructed with less, as in less interesting.
