“Calmer” or “more calm”. Which one is correct?

  1. Usually, calmer (the comparative degree of calm) is used in a sentence. e.g. He is calmer than his brother. Here calmer is an adjective and adding to the meaning of noun.

    However we can use “more” with calm in certain situations. e.g. She is more calm, patient and mature. In this case, we have three adjectives. Hence use of more seems to be more appropriate.

    We can now conclude that most of the times, we use calmer. However depending on the structure of sentence, we can use more with adjective i.e. calm.
