A question for speakers of Creole Hi all. This is a question for speakers of Creole... I am desperately trying to understand why a student of mine (not on italki) is having all kinds of problems understanding the difference between the superlative (the most expensive, the biggest etc) and the comparative (more expensive than, taller than etc). Whatever I try, it doesn't seem to work. She speaks another language too and the situation in English is actually identical to the situation in English (in terms of usage) so that cannot be the problem... So, I am wondering whether the system of comparatives and superlatives in Creole is somehow significantly different, when compared to the English system? Any comments would be appreciated, please.

Hello Andrew. I don't speak english very well but i'll try to help you as better as i can. Have you ever try un example between 2 shoes (trainers and slippers) trainers are more expansive than slipper. But a house is most expansive than trainers and slippers together. I'm wrong?
