Hello Everyone, :)

In my interetation textbook, there is a sentence: ... Today, the traditional Chinese health preservation methods, such as taiji boxing , static qigong breathing and therapeutic massage , are gaining inceasing importance...

I would like to know whether gain in the paragraph can be replaced by display or show as according to the original Chinese , the meaning should be display or show importance! I don't know if such collotation exists in English?

Regards

Sky:)

The purpose of the word "gain" is mean an "increase," so any word that you use in its place must mean the same thing.
