Hi everybody! When I'd like to say that prices are high, which one below sounds more correct?
1. Prices are on the steep side.
2. Prices are steep.
Thanks very much!
They are both correct. The difference is that 1) softens the apparent degree of steepness in price.
Erik : Thanks a lot for your answer.
