Before a that-clause, progressive forms of expect are not normally used.
- I expect (that) she will be here soon. (NOT
I'm expecting (that). . . )
This is from Practical English Usage, 3rd edition, page 177.
And the one below is from http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionarie...english/expect
Expect (that)Ö Many people were expecting (that) the peace talks would break down.
I really feel confused. Could you please help me why the author says a that-clause is not normally used with expect, although the dictionary uses it. What is the difference?
