Does "correct" have a comparative (or superlative) form? If does, should it be "more correct" or "correcter"?

For example,can I say,“Which sentence is more correct(or correcter)?”

I guess native speakers don't say that, but I still want to get an answer from native speakers.


'Correct' adjective has both comparative and superlative forms. They are 'more correct' and 'most correct' respectively.

Wiktionary has an entry for this.

I am not a native speaker, but I can't find a word 'correcter' as a comparative form of 'correct' in any dictionary.

    It's semantical reasons why you don't run into the comparative and superlative often. Oct 21 '15 at 14:28

It is "more correct" (and the superlative is "most correct"). Those are the correcter forms. Because "*correcter" is not a valid construct.

I need a corrector to come and correct this post wherever I have wrongly used "correcter"
