So, a comparative is a word like "hotter, bigger, faster, stronger, more expensive, less interesting". So a repeated comparative is when we say the comparative 2 times. Look at this example. The weather is getting hotter. The weather is getting hotter and hotter. Both are okay. But the second sentence is stronger. It is emphasizing more and more and more. Look at a few more examples. The boy is getting taller and taller. If you exercise, you will get stronger and stronger. This company is getting better and better. My health is getting worse and worse. When you are using "more/less + adjective" it is a little different. Look at a few examples. Gas prices are getting more and more expensive. These books are getting less and less interesting. The actress is becoming more and more beautiful every day. Notice we just repeat the "more/less" part. You only say the adjective one time. It's because the adjective is very long in these sentences, so we don't want to say it more than once. You can find many more lessons at TalkEnglish.com.
