Are both of these statements grammatically correct? Do they have different connotations? Or are they interchangeable?

  • Alice grew far slower than Bob
  • Alice grew far more slowly than Bob

1 Answer 1


Slow(adverb) = slowly; comparative form "slower."

Slowly = an adverb; comparative form "more slowly".

So, both your sentences seem fine.
