- For Teachers
Would it sound OK to the native speaker if I threw "much more easier" in an informal conversation for "much easier"?
Context is important. Please provide enough for us to be able to deal effectively with your question.
Your thread title should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.
If you just want to know the meaning of a word, try OneLook Dictionary Search first.
How about ''much more risky" for "much riskier"?
You mean post #3?
What's wrong with much easier?
Mrs. Adams gave us a really hard test last month. The one we had yesterday was much easier.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I've got another one. Is it much fairer or much more fair? My dictionaries say I can't use more fair though I've come across the use of it by native speakers.
And I would also appreciate your advice. Is it "neither ....nor......" or "neither ....or......" when it's used as a conjunction? In post#7 it's "neither....or.."

It was good enough for Wordsworth, so it's good enough for me, even though he wrote that over 200 years ago.
I would say that 'more fair' is best kept for the meaning of 'more beautiful'.
And I can't say fairer than that.
