[In this feeling more is on a regular basis used to alter an adjective or adverb and form a comparative expression, obtaining the same force and result because the relative degree made by the termination -er: as, more sensible (wiser), even more carefully; even more illustrious, much more illustriously; even more contemptible; more durable. It may possibly be made use of before any adjective or adverb which admits of comparison, and it is generally combined with terms of greater than two syllables, where the utilization of the suffix -er will be embarrassing: since, much more fascinated, more eminent, etc.; formations like curiouser, virtuouser, etc., becoming averted, though sometimes utilized in older authors. Formerly much more was frequently used superfluously in the relative: because, much more better, braver, fitter, mightier, etc.]
