    Are these sentences natural? November 16


    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. You have to come up with a plan in consultation with other group memebers.

    2. She must be talking now, right? ( I was talking with a mom about her child, on the phone )

    3. I am not in the office today due to some emergency at home.

    Thanks,
    MG.

    I prefer "an emergency" too. To me "some" indicates something unimportant; an emergency isn't unimportant.
