I am trying to find an adjective describing "very slow". Can I know what are the possible candidates or, better, the best word for it?
To further clarify my question, I am not looking for an adjective to describe something that one think might be slow but, instead, in a more objective way. For example, given an object
A you describe its speed is "slow", and you know that the speed of object
B is slower than that of object
A, then what is the best word you use to describe the speed of
The ideal answer would be the case that: once one said
A is slow,
B is xxx (where xxx is answer), then we will have no doubt that
B is slower than
Another example, when someone said
A is warm and
B is hot, then we know that
B is warmer than
A. I am looking for a word for slow in this case.
Bonus question: if there is also an object
C that is slower than
B, what word would you use to describe
C is faster than "not moving". Or, what is the longest sequence of adjectives that we can describe things with different degrees of slowness?
