As described by the Merriam Webster dictionary (online)
Honest hon·est \ˈä-nəst\
: good and truthful : not lying, stealing, or cheating
If it was a superlative ( due to presence of the 'est' suffix ), then a median truthful person will be called "honer" (comparative)?
And the adjective without comparatives or superlatives is .....
"hone" or "hon"?
Just another day pondering over senseless thoughts.
