    wiser

    I would like to know what is the proper way to say "wiser" or "more wise" which term is correct in a sentence. For instance; "Jessica is more wise than Cody." or "Cody is wiser than Jessica."


    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Both are correct....but "wiser" would be the better choice.

    Hello,
    I think the correct way to say it is: wiser because wise is a short adjective and not a long one, so we can not say more wise.

    In common speech, "more wise" is often said. A Google of "more wise" gives 216,000 hits.

    But as I said in my previous post "wiser" is the better choice.
