comment Problem understanding a sentence
"As for Tom, with me(私) as a standard of comparison(より), his stature is tall" in this explication, one possible interpretation would be that Tom and I are the same height (I am tall, tom is the same height as me, thus he is tall as well). Do you think this same possible interpretation exists in the original japanese? For this reason, perhaps interpreting より solely as "...standard of comparison" may be flawed. Maybe if we beefed up the japanese sentence the skewed comparison might be clearer 私よりトムの方が身長が高いです。(hopefully that is grammatically correct).
