Sorry, I don’t where this question actually goes, but here it is:
I was watching a Monyt Python sketch yesterday. They were talking about how “Nation fought nation, but no nation fought nation [color=#400080]morely[/color] than . . .”
Is that still a commonly used construction in modern British English? Just curious ‘n’ all. Over on this side of the pond, we’d say such a silly thing in this way: “No nation fought nation moreso than . . .,” or simply, “. . . more than . . . .”
Not that it matters. Not that there’s anything WRONG with that.
Oops, I mean on the side of the pond I was on a couple days ago.
