    Henle Latin 1st year

    Exercise 428, #4.
    Why does the text say "verius" for truer?

    On pages 434-435 you learned the comparative and superlative degrees of adjectives. "Verius" is the neuter comparative degree of "verus". That is where the translation "truer" comes from. If you want to see how the comparative is declined, see Henle grammar # 100.

      Is it neuter because it is not referring to any particular thing?

        It is because its antecedent is "quid" which is neuter. The translation would be "What is truer..."
