Comparative Form

It's easy to compare things when speaking Thai. For this the word กว่า  is used. Add it like a suffix to the end of any adjective to say "...than" or "-er." For example:

[is] bigger than...; larger than...ใหญ่กว่าyaiL gwaaL
[is] longer than...ยาวกว่าyaaoM gwaaL
[is] shorter than... (in length); briefer than... (in duration)สั้นกว่าsanF gwaaL
[is] shorter than... (in height)เตี้ยกว่าdtiiaF gwaaL
[is] taller than...; higher thanสูงกว่าsuungR gwaaL
[is] smarter than...ฉลาดกว่าchaL laatL gwaaL
[is] cheaper than...ถูกกว่าthuukL gwaaL
[is] cleaner than...สะอาดกว่าsaL aatL gwaaL
[is] better than...; better not; would rather...; had better...ดีกว่าdeeM gwaaL
[is] prettier than...สวยกว่าsuayR gwaaL
below; under; lower than; fewer than; less thanต่ำกว่าdtamL gwaaL
