The verb burugol is used to make comparisons. By itself, it means “to be better.”
Taksi no buri kaar. A taxi is better than a bus.
Lagine no buri Senegal. Guinea is better than Senegal.
Sellu no buri Aliu. Cellou is better than Aliou.

These are all rather vague sentences. To be more precise, we use burugol as a modal verb, which makes another verb comparative.
Taksi no buri kaar sattude. A taxi is more expensive than a bus.
Lagine no buri Senegal laaåeede. Guinea is more beautiful than Senegal.
Sellu no buri Aliu kaanude. Cellou is uglier than Aliou.

These structures also work:
Taksi no satti buri kaar. A taxi is more expensive than a bus.
Ko taksi buri kaar saatude. A taxi is more expensive than a bus.

This last form is more emphatic and would be used, for example, to contradict something that had been said. The word burugol is also used for superlatives:
Ko an buri stajeerbe ben fow labeede. You are the prettiest trainee. (literally, “You are prettier than all the trainees.”)

The word fotugol is used to express equality. In this context it always takes the habitual form.
Hibe fota. They’re the same.

This word can also be used as a modal verb to indicate in what way two items are the same.
Fatu e Binta no fota juutude. Fatu is as tall as Binta.

Notice two differences between the usage of fotugol and burugol: fotugol always takes the habitual form (no fota) and not the stative (no buri); and with fotugol, the items being compared are all in the subject (you don’t say *Fatu no fota Binta juutude).
