“More” and “Most”

“More” and “Most”

Often, people mean something but use the wrong word for it.

For example, most people will say, “Most importantly…”

And yet, what they mean to say is, “More importantly…”

“Most” should be used once all options have been exhausted or when one is certain

it is the final option, whereas “More” suggests there could be other options, in which

case there usually are.

Also the correct use of “Most” in the above example would be,

“Most important…”

We hope this lesson has been helpful.

Enjoy using it correctly.
