Is proud a feeling?

The word -proud- is an adjective. Comparable forms for adjectives are comparative and superlative. As you have phrased the question, -more prouder- is the comparative form of proud. And it is incorrect grammatically. The general rule (although there are exceptions) is: One syllable words: add an -er- at the end. Two syllable words: add either an -er- at the end or the word -more- before it. Three syllable words: add the word -more- before the word. Since -proud- is a one syllable word, the proper comparative is -prouder-. -More prouder- is not only incorrect, but it's also redundant.

Why do people say 'more proud' rather than prouder?

The normal comparative of native English adjectives is in -er: Proud - prouder. Comparatives in "more" are properly reserved for adjectives imported through Norman French: fortuitous - more fortuitous. But because the "more" construction mimics the conquering French grammar, it is more "elevated" than the native English form. "More proud" supposedly sounds nobler than "prouder" does. Snobbish nonsense, reallyThis is just one of those thousands of usages which have no particular reason, and have to be memorized.When children learn English, they don't learn it by memorizing a bunch of rules. They just hear something over and over, and since they've never heard anyone say "prouder" but have heard "more proud", they know to say "more proud".The inconsistency of the English language, with so many arbitrary variations, is what makes it one of the most difficult languages to learn.An adjective that is monosyllabic or that ends in -y (or like a few, in -some) normally forms the comparative the native English way, in -er: grand - grander; happy - happier; handsome - handsomer. A polysyllabic adjective normally forms the comparative the French way, with "more:" tepid - more tepid; important - more important.The one syllable (or in -y) adjective like good or proud or pretty may sometimes be made more dignified with the French comparative, just as the French grammatical structure makes "the house of God" sound more reverent than the native English grammar of "God's house." By the same token, the polysyllabic adjective will sound silly with the native comparative. Thus we may say more proud instead of prouder, if we need help standing on our dignity, but we won't say importanter unless we're clowning around.The "rules" of grammar of course do not govern grammar, they describe it. Grammar changes over time and English grammar is currently undergoing a media-driven spasm of stilted over-corrected change that is tying our tongue in knots.
