    trouble

    Does this sentence sound natural and have the same meaning as 'We are worried that we may fail'?

    We are troubled that we may fail.

    Re: trouble

    Not for me either.

    It's from one of the English-Japanese dictionaries that I have, and I wondered if it really worked.

    So 'be trouble that..' doesn't sound right to your native ear. Good.

    Thanks!
