Comparative adjectives

Function 1: Making explicit comparisons

Explicit comparisons compare two people, situations, or things, using a comparative and a clause or group introduced by than. They are surprisingly rare, accounting for only about twenty per cent of all uses of comparative adjectives.
Comparatives can be used to compare a person or thing with how they used to be, will be, or might be.
