κρεîττον , this adj. is in comparative form. How can I find its original form?
[FONT=New Athena Unicode, Gentium, Palatino Linotype, Lucida Grande, Galilee, Arial Unicode MS, sans-serif]κρατύς (meaning "strong", "mighty") the superlative is "κράτιστος".
"κρεîττον" is the comparative form of the neuter ἀγαθόν, which has 4 comparatives and superlatives.
The adjective in the masculine gender is ἀγαθός,
Comp. ἀμείνων, Sup. ἄριστος
Comp.κρείττων, Sup. κράτιστος
Comp.λῴων, Sup. λῷστος
Yeah, you are right. I think though that originally it was comparative of "κρατύς", the morphological resemblance attesting to it.
Separate names with a comma.
