    Are these sentences natural? July 20

    Hi,

    Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. He couldnít make it to the conference, which is a pity!

    2. Donít let this minor nuance take away from the overall positive news.

    3. This guy has two different colored eyes.



    Thanks,
    MG

    2) I would replace 'nuance' with 'detail'.

    3) If you're curious, this condition is called 'heterochromia iridis' or just 'heterochromia'.

    1. I can't justify the use of the exclamation mark.
