Hello. Please help me with a few questions.
1)Do you think it's possible to use "as expected" in reference to the future, for example: "As expected, they will arrive next week"?
2)Do you think the word combination "to gain a historic triumph over someone" sounds natural?
Thank you very much for all your help.

    1) sounds okay
    2) doesn't sound natural

  • English -

    1 would probably sound better like this: We expect they will arrive next week.

    2 sounds rather stilted! It would depend on the context, though.

  • English -

    As expected refers to the past generally, so it sounds odd as you used it. It made me imagine "they" were worrying about unlikely complications that the "expector" saw were frivolous. Context is everything.
