comparative and superlative
Does it really make sense to have "more extant" and "most extant" on here? You either exist or you don't...
- It does to me - imagine a thing that is in the process of fading out of existence. A ghost, for example, compared to the person from whom it was derived. bd2412 T 03:06, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
- Doesn't make sense to me, but they do get a handful of relevant Google book hits.
- By the way, what's the difference between the three definitions? The translation section would imply that there's only one sense. DAVilla 17:10, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
comparison ro existent
- According to each ones definition, I can only find tone difference of those two. 188.8.131.52 21:02, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

In the article, I think it would be a valuable addition to have an example of a full sentence that includes extant. --Mortense 12:45, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
I would really appreciate some usage examples of "more extant" or "less extant" in the ghost/present sense, I'm sure it's been used in fiction before, but can't find.Last modified on 15 June 2012, at 10:55
