USING THE IRREGULAR -ER, -ER STRUCTURE CORRECTLY


USING THE IRREGULAR -ER, -ER STRUCTURE CORRECTLY

This post is the next part of the previous post. We will continue to study Superlative and Comparative.

An irregular comparative structure consists of two parallel comparatives that introduced by the.

  • ·         The harder he tried, the further he fell behind.
  • ·         The older the children are, the more their parents expect from them.


In the first example, it contains the two parallel comparatives the harder and the further.
In the second example, it contains the two parallel comparatives the older and the more.
In this type of sentence, the and its comparison can be followed by a number of different structures. Take a look at these examples:
  • ·         The more children you have, the bigger the house you need.
  • ·         The harder you work, the more you accomplish.
  • ·         The greater the experience, the higher the salary will produced.

In the first example, the more is followed by the noun children and the subject and verb you have, while the bigger is followed by the noun the house and the subject and verb you need.
In the second example, the harder is followed by the subject and verb you work. Then, the more is followed by the subject and verb you accomplish.
In the third example, the greater is followed only by the noun the experience. Then, the higher is followed only by the noun the salary. You should consider that this last example does not even contain a verb, yet it is a correct structure in English.

The following chart outlines this irregular -er, -er structure:


I think that is enoug for now
