Thank you very much Mr. Adam for a good lesson. Though a low quality connection with internet brought me a lot of trouble.

Thanks, Adam. The least expensive = the cheaper. Right?

Profile photo of Andy Dixi Andy Dixi

    Hi Andy,

    The least expensive = the cheapest (of the group being looked at). Usually, when we say the least expensive, the thing is expensive, but less than the other choices.

    The least tall = the shortest (of the group)
    The least dark = the brightest( of the group)

    All the boys are tall, but Jim is the least tall.
    All the boys are tall, but Jim is the shortest among them.
    Hope this helps.

And can we always continue with this idea: the least tall = the lower, the least dark = the brightest, etc?

Profile photo of Andy Dixi Andy Dixi

    Sorry! without “the”: lower, lighter etc. I mean the second form

Thanks a lot Adam!!
But I´m now a bit confused about the differences between lessen and lower. If both are used as verbs, what´s wrong in saying:
Question 4: If the store wants to remain competitive, it has to lessen (= reduce) the prices of its products.
Is it because the word “prices” can´t be used with less, as it is countable (lessen=make less)?
Thanks ;)

Profile photo of knopfler86 knopfler86

    Hi Knopfler,

    Not only about countable or not. Think of context: prices go up or down, not more or less.

    That’s why we lower prices, lessen the time it takes to deliver the products to the customers.

    Does this help?

Hi Adam, is it correct to add word “attenuate” in tne row – lessen, reduce, mitigate ?

Profile photo of Ransom Ransom

    Hi Ransom,

    In and of itself, yes, you can add it. Not a commonly used word though.

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

6/10 (( thank You/

Profile photo of Alikhan Ghadirov Alikhan Ghadirov

9/10. Thank you. :) Could you please explain to me when we use low-quality rather than lower-quality?

Profile photo of Radica13 Radica13

    Hi Radica,

    lower involves a comparative (er), so it you are comparing two things, one can be of lower quality, or it is the lower-quality item among the two available.

    Is this what you had in mind?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

(the number of) does it take the least or the fewest?

Profile photo of Ahmedc95 Ahmedc95

    Hi Ahmed,

    It should be fewest as what follows is a countable noun.

Hi Adam thanks for the class. My doubt is about question 4. Why I can’t use lessen instead of lower?

Profile photo of Alex Figueiredo Alex Figueiredo

    Hi Alex,

    Think of context: prices go up or down, not more or less.

    That’s why we lower prices and lessen the time it takes to deliver the products to the customers.

    Does this help?

    Profile photo of Adam Adam

      Sure man..thanks a lot!

      Profile photo of Alex Figueiredo Alex Figueiredo

9/10. I think it~s not bad, but I will try to improve.

Thank you Adam for your helpful video. At the begininng I thought it’s going to be a trivial lesson but after a few minutes I found out how complicated it is. Although I got 9/10, I guess I need to catch more details from this video.

Thank you for this lesson. I have a question for you and I will be very happy to see your answer.
If the store wants to remain competitive, it has to ___________ the prices of its products. I quess we should use lessen, but the right answer is lower. Why can we not use both of them? Thanks!

“less”, “least”, and “lesser” are tricky. I need more practice. :)
