    Is the word "original" used correctly in these sentences?

    Hi! Can I use the adjective original in the following ways?

    --A lot of things may be classified as original or highly original.
    -His
    works are described as original.
    -
    I find his ideas rather original. (I find his ideas to be rather original).

    Moreover, in the following sentence, can I use the noun the "originals" to mean "the original works/ texts"?

    -
    Some translations are not very accurate when compared to the originals.
