mistakes most to be feared

Reply Tue 28 May, 2013 09:48 pm
I heard a local English teacher commenting on his students' English:

-These are the mistakes that are most to be feared.

In that sentence, I thought if the meaning is 'the mistakes are the most glaring', then MOST should be put behind FEARED, but on second thought maybe the teacher wanted to convey a different meaning; I'm not sure what that meaning was...

Altering the placement of the word most in that sentence does not change the meaning.
