Resolved questions

Can someone explain to me further the modifiers 一点(yi1dian3), 更 geng4, 非常 (fei1 chang2), and 最 (zui4)? Do they go before or after a word? Or can it go either way?

Also, can 一点 also be substituted for 一些? Out of the two, which one is more used?

    for quantity (which means when they are adj):
    没有 = don't have
    几乎没有 = few / little
    一点 = a few / a little
    一些 = some
    很多 = so many / so much
    非常多 = lots of

    as adv:
    一点<很 or 太<非常
    一点 = a little
    很 or 太= very
    非常 = extremely

    更 and 最 are used for comparative
    更 = more or prefer to...rathar than...
    最 = most
    for example, 在A和B之间,我觉得A更好看。 between A and B, I think A is more beautiful.
    我是我们班最高的。 I am the tallest in my calss.

    there is a word: 最爱 = favourite

    一点 = a little -- before and after
    更 = more -- before
    非常 = very -- before
    最 = most -- before
    一些 = several -- before
