Taller is <inalta>. Please do not argue. Wrong translation of taller with <<mare>>

Agreed. I also thought you had to use "decât" when comparing differences as opposed to "ca."

I do not yet have a sense to comment on <<decat>> and <<ca>> Both of them sound to me the same correct constructions.

My girlfriend (native Romanian) says decat and ca are pretty much synonymous for comparisons.
