    Constant growth

    I have read somewhere that this is not correct English: "a sector in constant growth with...". I do not understant why. Is it really incorrect?

    Re: Constant growth

    Please get into the habit of giving us at least a complete sentence containing the phrases you are asking about.

    Re: Constant growth

    "a sector in constant growth with thousands of new offers every year" (for instance). But my doubt lies on "constant growth". Is it correct English or not.

    Re: Constant growth

    That is not a complete sentence. Where did you find it?

    Re: Constant growth

    Nowhere. I am trying to write it in English. Ok: "We are analysing a sector in constant growth with thousands of new offers every year".

    Re: Constant growth

    If you put a comma after "growth" it will be OK.
