36. They are paying attention to constituencies which are growing smaller and smaller.

37. We just heard before the break radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, who was on, of all things, the David Brinkley show on ABC yesterday, being a commentator, talking about the Democrats not having an agenda, saying that, among other things, Democrats are paying attention to constituencies which are growing smaller and smaller.

38. His body seemed frozen there, staring down at Selina, who was growing smaller and smaller, and he knew she was still smiling at him.

39.…Suspended, her mind the intricate net of filament, she saw what the dark had hidden: cubes within cubes of patterned silver, each a completely different weave, growing smaller and smaller but never vanishing.

40. The more television expands into myriad cable channels, the more the major networks seem inclined to draw within themselves, growing smaller and smaller until, like a cartoon snake swallowing its tail, they completely disappear.

 

从以上可以看出,在美国英语中growbigger and bigger搭配的例句和grow smaller and smaller搭配的例句之比为30:40。即growbigger and bigger搭配的频率和grow smaller and smaller搭配的频率几乎一样。

综上所述,所谓的“become通常总是指由大变小或由多变少”,而grow则总是指由小变大或由少增多”是值得商榷的,即become既可以和smaller and smaller搭配,也可以和bigger and bigger搭配;grow既可以和bigger and bigger搭配,也可以和 smaller and smaller搭配。
