    most for almost

    "As a result, most never returned after their first trip to court."
    Would it be informal usage of 'most'? Is it grammatically accurate?

    It's grammatically correct but it's impossible to say where they didn't return to.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: most for almost

    'Most' here is the standard word, not a dialect version of 'almost'. It means most of the people previously mentioned.
