    can I use fast as adjective and adverb?

    1-I am faster than him. which means i can't use more?

    2-I can run more faster than him.

    Re: Hi

    Faster means 'more fast', there is no need for another 'more'.
    There are other words which you use 'more' when you can't use -er, for eg.
    more beautiful, more correct.

    Hello,

    I think "fast" is both an adjective and an adverb.

    Or I can run faster than him.

    Yes you can.
    The fast car travels fast. (adjective, adverb).
    A faster car travels faster. (adjective, adverb).

    This is by pure coincidence though. The opposites are:
    The slow car travels slowly.
    The slower car travels more slowly.
