Hello,

I'm a bit confused about the word 'healthy'. Are 'healthier' and 'more healthy' both the correct form of comparative degree of HEALTHY? If yes, which one is more common in daily talk?

Many thanks~

Anonymousyou cant put a 'iest" to a long word
You can.

Healthy has 2 syllables.
Adjectives of 1 or 2 syllables can take the superlative -est ending. The "y" changes to "i" as a spelling rule.

He is the healthiest person here.

Both should be fine but for colloquial speech, in my opinion, "healthier" sounds better.

Im pretty sure its 'most healthy' because you cant put a 'iest" to a long word
ex. wrong: beutifulest correct:most beutiful

Im not so sure because google says it is a superlative word.
