Communication Tip #24
When comparing two of anything: contracts, proposals, cities, skills, etc., the word to use is better. Use best when comparing three or more.
The same rule applies for words ending in er versus est:
- I have two children; the older one lives in Turkey.
- Mike is the funnier of the two comedians.
- We are accepting the lower bid of the two proposals.
- Lisa is the friendliest employee we have.
Make this a better week than last week…and the best week ever!
