    It follows


    Is the phrase it follows (to result as an effect; occur as a consequence) still used in modern English? I am asking because I have come across it chiefly in an older literature.

    "He could not have been there at the moment of the murder so it follows the killer must have been someone else."

    Thanks a lot.

    It's absolutely fine in contemporary English.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
