Consider the following sentence:
Oh you think this speech is insulting? Don't worry, it gets much more (insulting).
How should I phrase this sentence? Can I omit the second occurrence of the adjective or do I have to make a repetition?
I feel the sentence is unclear without it, but sounds stupid with it.
I don't have this problem with regular adjective, where the repetition feels more natural as the word is still different:
Oh you think this is scary? Don't worry, it gets much scarier.
I thought of using
don't worry, it gets much worse.
but I don't want to add a notion of good or bad. Insulting isn't the best example and without context you might want to use much worse but I'm sure there are adjective that don't have any good or bad connotation so it wouldn't solve the problem.
