    Red face more busy or busier

    Hi Everyone! Please help me!
    I feel confusing with this:

    Should I say " more busy" or " busier" in comparative sentence?

    Thanks so much!

    Generally, I'd use "busier". We tend to use "more + adjective" for adjectives which don't work with the "-er" suffix. As a general rule, those are adjectives with more than two syllables.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
