The Concise Oxford English Dictionary recognizes flamy (or flamey) as a word. It does not explicitly mention the comparative and superlative forms, but I would assume they are implied.

All that remains is to argue over whether it should be spelled flamier or flameyer! After seeing them both in print, I think your spelling is preferable.

Is it not true that if a word is used often enough - then it gets incorporated into the dictionary ?

Perhaps we can start the my candle is flamier than yours thread - and get flamier into the dictionary Smile

I recommend the New Oxford Annotated Bible - its scholarly notes on the text are brief but informative.

I can recommend the "good parts" if you're interested. In your current state of mind, I think you might find Ecclesiastes interesting. Its outlook might be described as proto-existential.

Some things you just should leave be - and another's religious views is one of them.

Wars get started that way...
