The sentence トムは私より身長が高いです。 means "Tom is taller than I
me." but I'm trying to find the meaning of each word in order to understand the japanese sentence better. Here is what I have so far:
トムは(Tom is topic), 私(I, me), より(less than or greater than?), 身長が(height of body), 高いです(is tall).
So I am having trouble making sense of how the words and particles relate to the sentence.
