How do you...

Form a negative comparative/superlative with an adjective...<br /><br />i.e. less pretty/least pretty = ?/?<br />as opposed to<br />prettier/prettiest = pulchrior/pulcherrima
flebile nescio quid queritur lyra, flebile lingua murmurat exanimis, respondent flebile ripae

Ah, I see. So you put the adverbial form of parvum in a comparative/superlative degree along with the adjective?
