It would work better without "times".
Interested in Language
I have come across this usage a couple of times in one day and for some reason it sounds a bit strange to me, so I wanted to ask if it is correct.
"It is still very early times, so we cannot comment on it."
This is referring to some project or possible business opportunity. I know sometimes some usages are not grammatically correct, but are widely used colloquially. Is this the case here?
Thank you MikeNewYork. One of the persons using this phrase is supposedly a Google spokesperson and the other one writes about science and technology in the Economic Times (which is a respectable newspaper in India). I am somewhat disappointed that the PR people and the writers/editors in newspapers don't use better English because I (like many other learners) look to these publications for improving my English.
In BrE, we use "It's still early days ..." when we mean that something is in the early stages.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
