    Not form degrees of comparison?

    Hello!
    I've read that there are some adjectives which do not form degrees of comparison e.g. relatives, of Latin origin and limiting. I agree with everything, but the word [url]left is limiting and what shall I do if I want to say that smth is левее?

    There is a synthetic superlative, but no matching comparative.
    Comparative: The [noun] farther to the left.
    Superlative: Leftmost [noun]; the [noun] farthest to the left.

    Leftmost and rightmost can't be used as adverbs, of course, but farther/more to the left/right can be.
