I have a question regarding no other. I have given two examples using no other. One in comparative degree and the other in positive degree.
Here are the examples:
1- No other poet in the world is more renowned than William Wordsworth.
I think I shouldn't use no other in sentences using comparative degree. I should use No because no other here means "William Wordsworth is more renowned than William Wordsworth." Am i right? But I have seen people use no other and no interchangeably in this case?
2- No other poet in the world is as renowned as William Wordsworth.
I think If I use positive degree both no other and no seems natural. What do you think?
