It may be used before any adjective or adverb which admits of comparison, and is generally used with words of more than two syllables, in which the use of the suffix -er would be awkward: as, more curious, more eminent, etc.; formations like curiouser, virtuouser, etc., being avoided, though occasionally used in older writers.
