How to use mostly in a sentence?

  1. Krystal Tolley:

    The first one we found was in the transition zone on the forest edge, where there are some trees but mostly maize and cassava plants, when we found it we got goosebumps and just started jumping around. We didn't know if we would get any more, but once we got into the forest there were plenty, although I don't know how long that will last.

  2. Douglas Noel Adams:

    A computer terminal is not some clunky old television with a typewriter in front of it. It is an interface where the mind and body can connect with the universe and move bits of it about. (from Mostly Harmless)

  3. Donald Trump:

    That’s not quite right, but it sure seems undemocratic. And it reeks of the kinds of insider politics that has caused widespread disgust with both parties. I say both parties because, as Donald Trump noted, Bernie Sanders is also getting hosed on the Democratic side. I’ve been concerned in the last few days that the media’s coverage of the presidential race is getting down into the weeds. The issues have mostly been drowned out, and even the state-by-state contests have been overshadowed by endless chatter about delegate math and party procedures. This is the stuff that media and political junkies crave but that civilians start to find incomprehensible. But people get it in their gut when someone is getting screwed. The latest headlines on the 2016 elections from the biggest name in politics. See Latest Coverage Primaries are the fairest way of picking a nominee. Caucuses are more time-consuming and complicated( although at least folks get to vote). And then there are states like Colorado. In March, Colorado held caucuses to pick delegates to a bunch of assemblies and conventions. And those people picked their favorite candidate. Ted Cruz won them all because Ted Cruz people outhustled an error-riddled effort by the Trump camp, and perhaps because the kind of party insiders elected to these gatherings don’t like Donald Trump. ( Yes, Ted Cruz is a hardly an establishment figure, but Ted Cruz’s become the most viable alternative for the GOP’s stop-Trump crowd.) The people out there are going crazy.

  4. Karen Merrill:

    Oklahoma, and this region of the country in particular, are pretty skeptical of things like that, i guess, mostly, it shows we've been through it so many times, and it's just a cycle. You have your hot, you have your cold.

  5. Mark Zuckerberg:

    I'm Mark Zuckerberg, and I used to just build out my ideas and hope they'd mostly speak for themselves. But given the importance of what we do, that doesn't cut it anymore.
