I did a Google search on the the sentence, "We grew warmer and warmer," and it only came up with a few hits, not even one page worth. So is this grammatically incorrect? Is there a better way to put this?

  • What are you trying to say? Context would be very helpful, as the sentence, while grammatically correct, does not make much sense. – snumpy Mar 28 '11 at 19:59
  • I'm trying to make a sentence like this: "We embraced, growing warmer and warmer." Basically two people embrace each other tightly during a winter night, and their tight embrace warms each other up more and more. – language hacker Mar 28 '11 at 20:04

The phrase works absolutely fine in the context you describe.


It' grammatically correct. Perhaps the reason you received so few results from Google has something to do with the phrase being rather bland.
