Can anyone tell me if Welsh has an option for forming comparative
adjectives that would be equivalent to English "more"? If so, when
would it be used instead of the suffix?

Thanks!

It appears from my contact with the field of car sales and automotive
publishing that car companies and dealerships have been hosting
speakers who specialize in "neurolinguistics".  This sounds like a
rather highbrow, irrelevant subject for Chevy salespeople to be
trained in, but someone who has endured such training tells me that
what is listed as a "neurolinguistics" seminar is actually about
nothing but practical reading of customers' body language.

Has anyone else run into this usage of the term "neurolinguistics"?
It appears to be rather widespread in certain sales fields.

I am looking for a practical textbook on some English-based Atlantic
pidgin or creole, and I was wondering if anyone knows of one,
preferably with tapes.  I'm thinking in terms of a text that will
teach the reader how to speak the language, rather than one just
outlining it from a theoretical linguistic standpoint.  While such
materials on Haitian French creole abound, I have not succeeded in
finding anything similar for an English variety.

Thanks for any help.
