    the increasing production

    I want to know whether the INCREASING PRODUCTION is correct gramatically or increase of production. In fact, I am always confused in using of some compound words.

    Re: the increasing production

    Welcome to the forum, b.mehdizadeh.

    Both 'increasing production' and 'increase in production could be fine, as could, possibly, 'increase of production'. It very much depends on contexts in which we use the words. Can you give us the whole sentence you wanted to say?

    Welcome to the forums, b.mehdizadeh, and congratulations on giving your thread a meaningful title.

    You need to give us a complete sentence containing your phrase so that we can give you a more informed answer.

    Don't be bothered by minute details like that, Rover (yes, I know it's a poor pun )

    I second that.

    ps. Sorry about that, b.mehdizadeh. Please post a complete sentence, and we'll look at it.
