Comparatives are wonderful words and I think they are really good tools for practical learning.


If I were shopping around for a sturdy, inexpensive cellphone case, and I saw some that were too expensive I might ask, "Do you have some others that are cheaper than these?" That's technically correct, but a bit unwieldy. It's nothing you'd really say in a conversational tone. Better to ask, "Got anything cheaper?"  


If you were bargain-hunting in your native language, how would you say "Got anything cheaper?" ^_^

Why is this titled "language tennis"?

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Maybe it's an idiom? Throwing words one after the other like how tennis balls bounce back and forth.

That certainly seems to be an idiom of that nature. Hmmmm. :thinking_face: I wonder what the poster was thinking?


Lol, just kidding. Where I come from, any activity that allows others to comment on or explain the same thing but in their own language was called "language tennis."
