I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side-- In this sentence why do they use more greener if both are comparitves ? please i need help!!!
Not a teacher.
I think it's a clash of familiar phrases. "The grass is always greener on the other side" is an idiom meaning that other peoples' lives/situations appear to be more desirable than your own.
Then take "this is no more whatever than that" as another common phrasing.
Combine the two, and you get the sentence you question. Logically, it should be "the grass is not greener" or "the grass is no more green."
