Example sentences using "Following"

Q: Please show me example sentences with Just wondering if the following is a correct sentence.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Several mothers I met said, “I become depressed when my children do not recover from a cold quickly, blaming it on the poor care I take of my children.”.
A: The way you've used "blaming" doesn't work in first-person. It'd sound more natural if you broke it up into two sentences, or, if you wanted to keep it in one sentence, use punctuation to separate the clauses. For example:

"I become depressed when my children do not recover from a cold quickly—I blame myself for not taking good enough care of them."

"...the poor care I take of my children" also sounded a bit awkward, so I changed it in the sentence above.

Other questions about "Following"

Q: If the following sounds unnatural, please correct it.

Regarding the pronunciation of the letter "b" and "v", for/b/, both lips touch and fully close. For/v/, the upper teeth touch the lower lip. But for Japanese, both sounds are similar, so I frequently make a mistake both of distinguishing method. When I pronounce the "b", I frequently use the v's method, and vise versa.
A: Oh no, I meant to add "fully close the mouth" after "The upper teeth touch the lower lip".

So, "For /B/, both lips touch/meet and seals/closes the mouth"
(I added more options)

For more explanation, you can say:
"For /V/, the upper teeth meets the lower lip and slight pressure is applied and released to produce the letter" (You can adjust the sentence to your liking)

You should also either write:
"... both sound similar to each other."
"... both of the letters sound alike."

If you do change it to one of these, you do not need to add "so" but a period.
ex. "But for Japanese people, they tend to sound alike. I frequently make mistakes trying to distinguish the two (letters). For "B", I would mix up the pronounication with "V" and vice-versa."


I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more clarification.
Q: I found the following sentence.

He got excited when she told him that her brother will come to the states.

Why is it will? I though it was would because the tense of the verb is the past tense.
I would appreciate if someone could answer this.
A: The word "would" describes something that was in the future at the time of the original action, but isn't anymore. In this context, "will" can work if her brother still has not come to the states. Replacing it with "would" would imply that her brother already ended up coming to the states.

Nevertheless, this is assuming that the sentence you gave is grammatically 100% correct. It is a very small difference in nuance and people mix them up all the time, so they are virtually interchangeable.

Q: The following sentence is natural?

X is counted as three moves. But if I want to denote Y as an unit of a count, what word should I use?
