31.3 Comparative in German

Concerning the comparative itself the German comparative has the same logic like the English comparison. The formation for the German comparative is similar to the English comparative for single-syllable or two-syllable English words.

Some examples  
  faul
= lazy
  fauler
=lazier
  schnell
= fast
  schneller
= faster
  teuer
= expensive
  teurer
= more expensive

We will talk about the details of the formation of the comparative a bit later. At the moment it is enough to know that the ending is -er.
