Should I say " I am more ready than ever" or " I am readier than ever" ??
How about the case of we using "easier, angrier, funnier.." ?
You would say "I'm readier than ever". Also - it is easier, angrier and funnier. There is some kind of rule to do with the number of syllables - shorter words end in "ier" or "er" in the comparative, longer words don't change but take "more". Never use "more" with the "er" or "ier" ending.
I wouldn't say more ready is wrong. It sounds more emphatic to me in that context.
I could use either sentence.
Separate names with a comma.
