Can we say : Scientist have a little hope of finding a cure for cancer or little hope.Can we say both? A little means positive and little negative

    Correct phrasing:

    Scientists have little hope of finding a cure for cancer.

    Notice the plural form: Scientists

    To say someone has "a little hope" means they really do have hope that something will happen.

    To say someone has "little hope" means that they have almost no hope that something will happen.

    can we use here a lot of hope?

  • English - Native speakers -

    Yes, that would work.
