    More often then not

    What does "more often then not" mean?
    When should I use it?

    Re: More often then not

    It approximates to the word usually.

    As in:
    'Have you seen the fox in your garden this week?'
    'More often than not, he sits by the compost heap first thing in the morning.'

    Notice that the questioner will infer an affirmative response from this reply and the word 'yes' is omitted.
