I just found a minor thing in a comment:

"It's *monotonously* increasing."

I tried to find the usage of "monotonously increasing" for monotonic functions,
and I did not find it. The (as least most used) term is "monotonically," so the
sentence would be like "It is a monotonically increasing value." But it is just
a minor thing. Anyways:
