So I am working hard on my website, I do that for hours every day, and my eyes fall on this quote of mine at the Homeschool Planner home page:
Don’t underestimate your children’s ability to model your worse habits.
And I wonder about the usage of the word, worse, “That’s not right, or is it? Should it say worst instead?”
I looked it up and found that worse is the comparative form of bad and worst is the superlative of bad.
Comparative? Superlative? Those terms sound familiar. Oh — I wrote about that when I rewrote the web page about Determiners.
> comparative – shows quantity, quality, or manner between two elements
> superlative – shows quantity, quality, or manner among three or more elements
This seems to indicate that I should change the word from worse to worst. Of habits, everyone has several of them, both good and bad, don’t they?
