Older Kriol speakers in the Victoria River District do not use comparative constructions in the strict sense, i.e. involving comparative marking of any sort (this corresponds to the lack of such constructions in at least some of their traditional languages). Usually, the properties of two referents are compared explicitly, without marking of the adjective (see also Feature 42 "Comparative standard marking"). Acrolectally, comparative forms involving mo 'more' plus the unmarked form of the property expression, or (lexicalized) double marking (mo beta 'better', mo haya 'higher') are used, as the examples show. The suppletive form beta 'better' is also found on its own.
Comparative constructions are not discussed in the literature on Kriol surveyed here, so presumably they are not used in "heavy" Kriol in the other varieties either.
