can repeated & double comparatives be used simultaneously?
can repeated & double comparatives be used simultaneously? like "the more & more ...". if so what does they mean?
thanks in advance.
Usually, people repeat words for emphasis. You would not use phrases like this for formal or academic writing. It is informal or conversational.
Specifically, "more and more" implies that something is happening over and over. Here's an example: He ate more chocolate. Then he ate even more chocolate.
It is easier to put this all into one sentence.
Informal: He ate more and more chocolate.
Formal: He repeatedly ate more chocolate.
