More \mohr\ , adjective;
1. In greater quantity, amount, measure, degree, or number
1. An additional quantity, amount, degree, or number
1. In or to a greater extent or degree; in addition; further; longer; again

This word comes from Old English mara, an adjective meaning "greater, more." It derives from Proto-Germanic *maizon from Proto-Indo-European *meis. In Old English ma ("more") from Proto-Germanic *mais was used for the adverb and noun. Ma initially became mo in Middle English, but it was eventually replaced by more in later Middle and then Modern English.
