I would like to use the word "significant" with the word "more".

Here is my sentence:

Estimating the model parameters using method A will provide significant more flexible models.

I fell my sentence is wrong, but not sure. Any help, please?

  • Do you mean “significantly more” as in “a lot more”? – Mixolydian Mar 12 at 2:48
  • @Mixolydian, yes. will it be correct? – F.family Mar 12 at 3:09
  • You have to use the adverb significantly instead of the adjective signficant to modify the adverb more. This goes for modifying any adverb, adjective or verb (that is, you have to use an adverb. Adjectives can only modify nouns.) – Mixolydian Mar 12 at 3:48
  • @Mixolydian Thank you so much. I really just learned a new thing. This is very helpful. – F.family Mar 12 at 4:05

Taken from my earlier comment:

Since it sounds like you want to express the meaning “a lot more”- You have to use the adverb significantly instead of the adjective significant to modify the adverb more. This goes for modifying any adverb, adjective or verb- that is, you have to use an adverb. Adjectives can only modify nouns.
