This question already has an answer here:

I came across this sentence:

光{ひかり}は音{おと}よりも速{はや}く進{すす}む

And I don't understand the purpose of the word よりも. I have a feeling that より and よりも have basically the same meaning (more than) and も is used to emphasis it.

Is there any difference between より and よりも?

Thanks, Or

    In this context よりも means "in comparison to" – user3856370 Nov 26 '16 at 18:53
