    Default Re: easy; easier: much easier; much more easier

    This one I've found at prsent.
    "Look at the faces here around you, and you see an America that is more fair and more free and more just than the one Dr. King addressed that day."

    What about "neither or" or "neither nor"?

    Mrs. Adams gave us a really hard test last month. The one we had yesterday was much easier.
    Nothing. I was thinking it was redundant, but I was wrong.

    But still to my question in post#11. I've always been taught that it's "neither.... nor.....". Can I use "neither ....or...." as in post#7?

    You shouldn't. SD made a rare slip.

    Neither "much more easier" nor "much easier" is correct.

    And a reminder - "much easier" is correct.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
