A question about より I learnt that より is used to express comparison and also means from. For comparison, the structure is AよりBはおおきいです. At least, this is what I learnt in school which means B is bigger than A. But I came across several times where a sentence begins with just よりAは... for example. What does it mean when there's no noun in front of より?

If the sentence starts with より, it should be followed by an adjective and then a noun. より, in this case, can be replaced by もっと. より+adjective +noun より良い世界をつくるために働いています。 I'm working to make a better world. =もっと良い世界をつくるために働いています。

①It doesnt make sense with out noun in front of より in this sentence. Its the same like English as "than" And just in case... ②AはBよりおおきい=BよりAはおおきい
