Hi,

I want to use the word 'than' in comparative context correctly. I think we can use an object after the word 'than' but how about in formal context?

I play tennis better than he plays (or he is??)
He is taller than I am.
He speaks English better than I am (or I speak??)
He does things better than I do
He dances better than I do (or I am??)

The auxiliary for those verbs would be DO, so you need that, and not the verb TO BE.
AnonymousHe is taller than I am.
Here the auxiliary is TO BE (He is taller...), so using the sentence above is fine.

Hope you understand this simple rule. Emotion: smile
