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:

Examples:

  • 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!
