    What is this piece of grammar called?

    Hi fellas,

    can anyone clarify me on those sentences "the more...the more..."

    For instance "The more I eat, the thicker I get."


    "The faster you go, the more fuel you burn.

    What are this clauses offically called? I need it for an assignment.
