    Re: Quite\rather

    (We use quite\rather with the base form of an adjective, rather with the comparative and quite with the superlative.)
    Thanks for the tip, Tdol

    Re: Quite\rather

    Maybe 'best' is non-gradable and we are supposed not to use 'rather' with non-gradable adjectives; we can say 'rather good' or 'quite good' but not 'rather perfect' but 'quite perfect' (quite here means 'completely, absolutely')
