    Hi there,
    I know that the first option here - 'even wealthier' is the accepted and correct form of the comparative for wealthy but is the other option - 'even more wealthy' really incorrect?
    I'm quite a stickler for grammar and yet can't seem to discount the second option.
    I have also seen other such examples : even more busy (even busier), even more funny (even funnier)
    Any feedback would be gratefully received.
    Cheers :confused:

    No, it's not incorrect, Motjuste; it's simply less common.
