Linguistic Discussion Question

Cleverer/More clever


I know that some adjectives can have two comparative forms, and I'd like to ask you which of them are the most common in your region:

- cleverer or more clever;

- simpler or more simple;

- narrower or more narrow;

- shallower or more shallow;

- quieter or more quiet?

I'd say:  more clever, simpler. more narrow/shallow/quiet. 

Thank you in advance


Both are possible but the ones ending in -er are better in this case
