Over to u:
Comparative and superlative form:

On the doubt asked by NI2D students: "friendlier or more friendly?"
According to different grammars, we usually use +ER when we have a two-syllable adjective ending in "y": happy--> happier, busy--> busier.
Some adjectives accept both structures: This means that they can be used with -er and -est and with more and most: e.g. clever, gentle, friendly, quiet and simple. (you can check it here: http://www.eflnet.com/tutorials/adjcompsup.php)
However, if you aren't sure about which structure is better or possible, stick to the usual pattern: + ER
