    Post Sleepwalking

    Hey

    I wanted to know if it's correct saying "sleepwalking day by day". It's to say that someone is sleepwalking all the time.

    Thanks in advance
    Holly

    It's not correct. You need to say that the person sleepwalks every night, whenever they fall asleep, regularly, etc.

    Apart from nightshift workers who sleep during the day, most people would sleepwalk during the night.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    'Sleepwalking' is also used metaphorically.

    Re: Sleepwalking

    It's really not possible to advise how to say "sleepwalking all the time" unless we know what you mean. Sleepwalking all the time doesn't happen in reality. We'd need to know what you mean by "sleepwalking" and "all the time".
