PREFERRED TERM
1274Genitive of comparison  
SCOPE NOTE
  • This use of the genitive almost always comes after a comparative adjective (like ‘more’, ‘less’, ‘greater’, etc.). The customarily used ‘of’ translated with the genitive should instead be translated ‘than’. It is a relatively common use of the genitive case.
