    Hi

    Les buffles sont plus calmes que les vaches quand ils sont en chaleur

    Buffaloes are quieter than cows when in heat

    or

    buffaloes are more quiet than cows when in heat

    Are both correct?

    Thanks

    I would say quieter.

    "more quiet" just doesn't sound right to me

    Ok

    I have seen both on some websites, but I don't know if they were written by good english speakers,

    and I would have said "quieter" as well, but it doesn't exist in the WR dictionnary...
