getting warm? ABC Murders
Following my first question here of Feb.25, to which Dr. Sheppard has kindly given a quick reply for which I thank you very much, I would like comments on the below:
"We are getting warm,"said Inspector Crome-rather inaccurately, for he himself was always slightly chilly.
What is "inaccurate"?
My friend says "getting warm" is not accurate English expression, but "getting hot" accurate. But, acording to my dictionaries, "getting hot" seems not inaccurate. I would appreciate explanation on this.
