  • You mean the preparations “are heating up”. “Hotting up” is not a word. :-) (Sorry, I just can’t bear to look at that.)

    • "Hotting up" isn't a word... it's two words ;-)

      The first 3 google hits for the phrase come from the Economist, St John's Ambulance, and the BBC.

      The phrase has a rather different meaning (increasing in intensity) from "heating up" (making warmer). Sure it's informal. You may not like it, but I'm not sure that pretending it doesn't exist is very sensible.
