    Re: rich

    Rich/richer/richest

    Rich/more rich/most rich [not good grammar]

    Use the comparative on its own: The richer a family is...

    "...the more possible it is for its children to achieve good academic results."

    Not the quotidian usage, but there is nothing wrong with the grammar, I think, Anglika. It certainly has its uses, e.g. for stress or style--

    Now I have to tell them it actually works, and no doubt make you even more rich
    Interface is visually more rich and flexible than jQuery
    Wishing me like to one more rich in hope

    etc.
