Degrees of comparation

From:Andreas Johansson <and_yo@...>

I recently realized that from an internal POW, it'd make a lot of sense for
Tairezazh to have "negative" degrees of comparation, that is inflections
signifying "less" and "least". So, taking _dair_ "beautiful" as example, the
full range of comparation 'd be:

tshedair    most beautiful
dadair      more beautiful
dair        beautiful
medair      less beautiful
sizdair     least beautiful

(All to be stressed on the _ai_)

Are there any natlangs with a similar system?
