    most reseach in this field (specific?)

    Hello,

    I was taught that we should use 'most + noun' when we are talking about a specific group of things. For example:

    - Most companies made great profits this year. (GENERAL)

    - Most companies in Germany made great profits this year. (SPECIFIC)

    However, I have come across the sentence I wrote here: http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/most_2

    - Most research in this field has been carried out by the Russians.

    My question is that is this sentence proves that we can use 'most + noun + in X' for specific situations as well?

    Thank you!

    The sentence demonstrates that we can use that construction in certain contexts.
