    • Abstract:
      The article discusses the two main issues concerning the history of periphrastic comparatives, firstly the date of origin of periphrastic forms and secondly the similarity between Romance and English prephrastic comparative structures found in Latin and French translations. The article also investigates the systematic inclusion of the notion of gradience in linguistic theory.
