Far less là gì

would it be better to say, “It was much less complicated.” or “It was a lot less complicated.” Thanks! Derrick​

“It was much less complicated.”It was much simpler.”It was a lot less complicated.”It was a lot simpler. I have a point.My point is that I would always try to avoid two contrary adjectives UNLESS I was using them deliberately. What do I mean? The green sentences have an enhancing word (much or a lot) together with a diminishing word (less) associated with complicated. These create conflict in the reader”s brain. Conflict in the reader”s brain is usually (not always) a Bad Thing.

Is that why Henry David Thoreau in Walden advises us to “Simplify, simplify” rather than “Make less complicated, Make less complicated” ?(He should, of course, have simply said: “Simplify”.) Actually, pan, I can”t see that “much less” would create any particular confusion in the brain of a native English speaker – but for a learner, I agree that it could be a painful construction to get one”s head around.It could also be expressed as, “It was considerably less complicated.” But either, of course, is correct, with “much” being the more formal.Grammatically speaking, “a lot” is horribly colloquial, let alone “way.” You should never write “way less.” “Much less” is the correct use in these circumstances.“It was much less complicated.”It was much simpler.”It was a lot less complicated.”It was a lot simpler.

Conflict in the reader”s brain is usually (not always) a Bad Thing.Yes, but simple is not the same as “less complicated”. Simple is “not complicated”. By changing the adjective, you”ve crossed zero from negative to positive, whre the original intent was to say in the negative range, just less so. Especially in the case of having done something for someone… you never want to remove their expectation that what you do is complicated. Dealing with such complications is where you derive your value to them. You”d never (well not usually at least) want to outright tell them it”s simple. Why then they might very well try to do it themselves next time.

And to be honest, as I read through the analysis, I”m sure I agree with you in general too.

On the “a lot” (or “alot”) subject – there are some people who absolutely will not use it in their writing. My English teacher in 11th grade, a brilliant man, admonished us to never use it. Given this advice from some time ago, I actually try not to.
