To continue means to go without stopping. To progress means to move forward. Is it possible to use them in the same way in certain situations? For example, "The traffic noise has been continuing since this morning."
If I replaced "continuing" with "progressing", would the new verb change the meaning of the sentence? Thank you very much.
Progressing does not work. The noise has not moved forward in any way. It has remained as it was.
