    Negative comparisons

    Hey,

    are negative comparison forms such as less/the least expensive restricted only to more syllable adjectives that we usually grade using more/the most or can we also use less/the least long?

    Thanks for your time...

    Re: Negative comparisons

    Could you write some sentences demonstrating what you are puzzled about?

    E.g.: You are less tall than me.

    To me sounds strange...
