Help me with my sentence please.


Can I say:  I gave way to sleep   ?

1 answer


'Gave way' is a phrasal verb and fits into your sentence, but it's not a common usage referring to sleep. The sentence indicates that sleep finally came after some tossing and turning, so if that is your meaning, definitely use it.
