Are there any adverbs/pronouns (or sentence constructs) that fulfilled the gradation role of more and less in Early Modern English, that currently fell out of use or exist only in marginal, archaic or domain-specific speech?
example: how could one rephrase these sentences into Early Modern English, so that they don't use the the words 'more' or 'less'?
You did more for me than you imagine.
Less gawking, more helping!
I should study that some more.
I meant that more... figuratively.
Pour me some more coffee, please.
(note, if there are no such words, an answer that states so is perfectly acceptable)
