Hello everybody !

Why is it right to write "We won't go camping until the weather is more warmer." ?

I would have written is warmer, the expression is more warmer sounds like a pleonasm to me...

"More warmer" is not correct. "Warmer" is, as you suspected.

"We won't go camping until the weather is more warmer." ( 'more' is not required )

I think you have read the sentence wrongly.

It should be "We won't go camping until the weather is much warmer."

Hi Clive

You were faster in replying.
CliveHi,
Why is it right to write "We won't go camping until the weather is more warmer." ? What makes you think it's right?My grammar exercice book "Intermediate Language Practice" by Michael Vince.
One of the numerous exercices asks to choose the correct adjective in each sentence :
We won't go camping until the weather is more boiling/warmer.

I'd chosen boiling but warmer was given as the correct adjective in the key at the end of the book.

Obviously, following your comments, warmer seems to be wrong now...

We won't go camping until the weather is more boiling/warmer.

I'd chosen boiling but warmer was given as the correct adjective in the key at the end of the book.

Obviously, following your comments, warmer seems to be wrong now...

more warmer seems to be wrong now... (Not seems to be wrong. It is definitely wrong; 'much warmer' is fine.)

Ok, thank you. Good to hear that it was not my fault. Emotion: big smile

It is more warm at the beach than at the mountains.

Maybe you don't realize it, but you are answering a question that was asked and answered more than 12 years ago.

Why not answer questions that are more recent? That way there's a better chance that the person who asked the question is still participating on our forum and can benefit from your answer.
