I feel like I am sweating. Eventhough I am staying just still here.

Do you have a question?

How can I collect this sentence??

I do not understand your question. Please rephrase it.

(Both sentences are grammatical, by the way, except that one cannot collect sentences.)

It must be a hot day there. It is quite warm here. (Ninety degrees Fahrenheit as I type this.)

:wink:

I think 'collect' = correct.

I feel like I am sweating. Eventhough I am staying just still here.

As you are using a verb, many would prefer 'I feel as if...'. However, in modern English, many would use 'like' there. The sentence is strange- you should know whether you are sweating or not, but it's correct. 'Even though' is two words. I'd say:
I am sweating here even though I'm completely still.

How about: "It is so hot I am sweating just sitting here at the computer."

Or: "It is a really hot day. I am only sitting still and I am sweating."

Or: "It is so hot today that I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking."

:wink:

It's such a hot day that sweat is pouring off me even though I'm just sitting still.

??? ;-)

That is good. The "pouring off" is a rather evocative phrase.

You sweat like a pig, women perspire and ladies glow. ;-))

A lexicographer might. ;-)
