Older Kriol speakers at least in the Victoria River area do not use comparative constructions in the strict sense, i.e. involving a standard of comparison (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. 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, and a particle den 'than' as marker of standard is attested but very rare. Comparative expressions without a standard are also attested (see examples given for Feature 41 "Comparative adjective marking").
