So I posted a joke on Facebook, and one of the peanut gallery chimed in that where I'd used vaster, he would have preferred more vast.
Leaving aside the question of whether vaster itself is well-established enough, is there a linguistic term or at least well-understood heading under which errors in English comparatives are collected?
I'm talking specifically about the kinds of errors where non-native or less well-read native speakers use, e.g., more hot rather than hotter, or more wet rather than wetter. Really egregious cases.
I am not asking about cases where reasonable and well-educated people can legitimately disagree on whether "Xer" is well-established enough to displace "more X", or usage of "more X" is still broadly observed in the population.
