Les irrégularités de la comparaison

Reminder: To make comparisons, we use plus, moins / aussi ou autant... que (more than/less than/as [big] as).
There are some exceptions:
• For bon (good/nice), we use meilleur (better/nicer), not plus bon.
Il fait bon à Paris, mais à Marseille il fait meilleur ! The weather is nice in Paris, but in Marseille it’s nicer.
•  For bien (well/good), we use mieux (better) not plus bien.
Victor cuisine mieux que Marcel. Victor cooks better than Marcel.
•  For mauvais (bad), we can use both pire (worse) or plus mauvais.
Edward est vraiment mauvais en français, mais Bossu est encore plus mauvais que / pire que lui ! Edward is really bad at French, but Bossu is even worse than him!
