    Smile help please

    Why would you say something is 'more expensive' than something and not 'expensiver'?

    Expensive does not have comparatives, so "more expensive" and "most expensive".

    In addition, words longer than one syllable take more and most. Expensive has three syllables, so use more expensive and most expensive, not expensiver. There are exceptions, of course, as is the case with most everything in life.

    Thank you! Also... can you tell me why people would find it difficult to pronounce the following phrases... fish and chips, bread and butter, now and then.
