1. The grass grows thick in the garden.
2. The grass grows thickly in the garden.

3. The grass grows thin in the garden.
4. The grass grows thinly in the garden.
(Which expressions are correct and grammatical?)

Since I could say, "The grass is thick [or thin] in the garden," and keep the same meaning, I would use sentences 1 and 3.

Scroll down a bit and read all about the "multiple personalities" verbs!!

Thank you for your help.

1. The grass grows thick in the garden.
2. The grass becomes thick in the
garden.
(Does #1 mean #2? or is 'thick' used as an adverb?)

•English - Writeacher, Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 7:02pm
In both sentences, "thick" is a predicate adjective describing "grass."
