comment Is the sentence “we grew warmer and warmer” grammatical?
What are you trying to say? Context would be very helpful, as the sentence, while grammatically correct, does not make much sense.

comment Usage of the verb “provide”
@Cerberus I agree that it sounds a bit awkward and that give might be a better word choice, but I'm still pretty sure it is grammatically correct.

comment What is the counterpart to 'reply'?
I'm partial to "original message" and "query"

comment Is there a word that contains all the vowels?
Now that I really like. Because you have both "precarious" (without a 'y') and "precariously." So the words have "a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes 'y'! =D

comment Which one is correct? (Usage of “reach” vs. “arrive”)
"The plane arrived on time," or "the plane reached the terminal on time," not, "the plane reached on time."

comment What is the proper preposition for this question?
As I mentioned above, "Not by my watch," means "Well, according to your watch I may be late, but according to my watch, I'm not late. The second guy was insisting on his promptness by suggesting his watch stated he was on time, though the first guy's watch may have been fast, indicating he was late.

comment Can I say, “Your example was quite graphical”?
Though this often has a connotation of "bloody" or "violent." Maybe "highly illustrative" (as Kelly mentioned) would more effectively express what he seeks.

comment What is the word for “understandable by specific group”?
Are you looking for "classifiable?" maybe a little more context would help explain which word you seek.
