Comparative structures: things or people that are the same

First, we can use 'as ... as' with a normal adjective (not a comparative) to say two things are the same: We can use 'not as ... as' to say that two things are not the same. Comparative Structures: one thing or person is more than another thing or person

We can say that something is more than another thing by using a comparative adjective with 'than'. We can make the comparison stronger by using 'far' or 'much' or 'a lot' before the adjective. We can make it less strong by using 'a little' or 'a bit'. We can say that one thing or person is less than another thing by using 'less ... than': To show something is changing, we can use 'comparative and comparative' or 'more and more adjective'.
