    Are these sentences natural? Sept 11

    Hi,

    Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Can you suggest a winning team from this list?

    2. We have been playing a phonetag with him.


    3. That is something we are keeping our eyes on.


    Thanks,
    MG

    NOT A TEACHER


    "Phone tag" is uncountable. We have been playing phone tag with him.

    My first reaction to your response was that although you indicated "phone tag" is uncountable, you forgot to strike "a". But as others have mentioned, the strike feature is difficult to see. Just a suggestion, I usually bold the word or phrase I want to strike and then use the feature.
