That is true especially about language learning

More rich is ok I think!

I'll add it, though it's a lot less common.

You're the linguist and me the translator, but I wouldn't do that. The number of native speakers who would say "more rich" is vanishingly small.

I agree, and I hesitated quite a bit, but in this case I don't really see any harm in accepting it. It'd be in case we're afraid of teaching non-natives bad English. I'll give it some though at least - thanks for the feedback.

Up to you, but I've seen a number of remarks/questions from non-Anglo learners of Swedish who don't have it clear that regular one-syllable adjectives almost invariably take the -er/-est form. That would be the harm: teaching poor English for the sake of teaching good Swedish. I know there are a lot of variables in what you do. Cheers, and thanks once again.

Yeah, you're right. I'll remove it in the morning.

"It makes us wealthier" should be accepted too.

Sure, I'll add that.
