  • Ther are many words in the dictionary that I would avoid. "Stupider" is one of them. Just pronouncing it is awkward.

    "The Heath Handbook" has a list of the preferred comparative and superlative forms of adjectives and adverbs. The handbook's rule of thumb is that, if a word is one syllable, use "er" and "est," as in "tall, taller, and tallest."

    But . . . "Many adjectives of two syllables and all longer adjectives form the comparative and superlative by adding "more" and "most."

    Examples: alert more alert most alert
    ambitious more ambitious most ambitious

    I suppose you would choose "alerter" and "alertest"
    "


    Omg! Get over it! Who really cares, other than you?

  • What are you getting at? Do you or don't you? There is nothing wrong with the way the question is worded.

  • Yes it's a word, look it up and go be bitchy somewhere else. If you weren't going to answer the question you just answered to be rude, so go away.

    4. Dazed, stunned, or stupefied.
    5. Pointless; worthless: a stupid job.

  • Ya know, you can go away anytime. You are still WRONG. Psycobabble and intellectual rambling doesn't count. So you continue to prove the point. Go be rude somewhere else! Bye now!

  • I love how people get facts put right in front of them and they try to overexplain their way out of it. What a desparate attempt to not be wrong.
