    Double comparatives: more and more/ less and less

    MORE and MORE... //// LESS and LESS// FEWER and FEWER... 



    Let's start with what's easier when dealing with DOUBLE COMPARATIVES: 




    1. MORE AND MORE+ adjective: 

    a) Using long adjectives: more and more+ long adjective: 

    - more and more difficult // more and more beautiful // more and more interesting... 


    b) Using short adjectives: ... adjective+ ER AND adjective+ ER... 

    - Bigger and bigger// faster and faster// heavier and heavier. 




    a)  When the double comparative is followed by an uncountable (which cannot be counted):  

    - She has less and less work// I eat less and less chocolate. 



    less money                  fewer coins

    less water                   fewer bottles                                             less juice               fewer bottles

    less food                     fewer apples


    b) When the double comparative is followed by a countable: (in the plural): 

    - fewer and fewer cigarettes // fewer and fewer people. 



    1.fewer// 2. fewer //3. less//4. fewer//5. less// 6. less 


    3. LES EXCEPTIONS : good// bad// far. 

     Good  ... better than...  ... better and better. 
     Bad ... worse than ...   ... worse and worse. 
     Far ...farther than/ further than... 

     farther and farther.

     further and further.
