    just a side note: I never knew cleverer was a real word, but just googled it and it does exist. I thought it was more clever, because cleverer sounded stupider. :wink:

    Apparently it's $25,000 for a nine week program.

    Grammatically, most two syllable words can go either way. Using "more" is commoner, especially for words that end in "-er" (clever, for example). About the only two syllable words I can think of off the top of my head where it's common to use "-er" are words that end in "-ly" (lovelier, lonelier, etc).

    Using more 'more' is a more good way of phrasing things

    On a seriouser note, apparently moor has three definitions.

    Is there a word for opposite of onomatopoeias? Example: cleverer sounds stupider

    This is crazy, i can kick a machine in its output device and it will not even moan, the day they invent one that will come after me and kick me back is the time when we will know tech has been at least partially successful.
