are the words less and the least used only with adjectives that are graded with more and the most or is it correct to say:
#1 It was less cheap than I had expected.
Personally, Id prefer:
#2 It was more expensive than Id expected.
Are both of them correct then?
Thanks for sorting it out.
Re: Negative comparatives
You would not use less or more with cheap

Cheap, cheaper, cheapest
You cannot do this with expensive though so therefore you use less or more.
