    Default Are these sentences natural? Nov 5



    Hi,

    Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. In next little while, we will have three new members. (should I say 'the next' just 'next')

    2. I have been doing a research on cloud computing. (is research a countable noun)

    3. I have been compiling a list of questions for you as I am working on the report. (I am not sure about the use of tenses in the sentence)

    Thanks,
    MG

    1. How about "soon?" That's natural, while "in the next little while" is not.2. No. I have been doing research. 3. OK
