Hi to everybody ,
I wonder if you could help me to understand the difference between
gradable and ungradable ajectives , "brilliant" is supposedly ungradable,
but I can say : "more brilliant" . Which adjectives are truely ungradeable ?

I think gradable and ungradable adjectives are the same in all languages, because the logic is universal. So if it's not one in Spanish, it won't be in English. Brilliant meaning superb is not gradable, I think. Brilliant meaning reflecting light might be.
