Would this question be correct?

Does “framed permanently in a harrowing grin” make sense?


Messed this thing up, the whole phrase would have been, “And with his mouth framed permanently in a harrowing grin, he spoke” And it’s definitely supposed to ask if the phrase is right.

    That's not a question/sentence.  It's a phrase.

    In an "acutely distressing" grin?  To whom was the grin acutely distressing?

    It's a pity you hadn't the sense to give the WHOLE SENTENCE rather than a short chunk, but yes, I can imagine that someone might write this in a novel or short story,  describing (presumably) the character's teeth.

    only if the thing being framed lies within that grin.  the idea is that the grin is acting as the borders to something (that is what framing means: the thing acts as a border).

    This is a phrase, not a question.

    If you're describing a face, yes.
