Assunto:  the comparative or superlative - Breckenfeld
 
Mensagem:  My post was to do w/ the categorization of either comparative or superlative form, which had been asked in the very beginning.

As for the usage of the words "farther" and "further" - which I didn't mean to comment - I understand many native speakers (like you) use them interchangeably; yet, that's not what  many well-known lexicographers and grmmrians state (you might simply not care about it)...

We, Brazilians, also fossilize expressions/terms/words that are thought to be "incorrect" / "inappropriate"... nevertheless, we keep using them daily. So what? Lgg. are like clothes, we wear the ones which suits best at a particular time.

Bye.
