Q: A majority of the cutomers who completed the survey rated Sasaki mobile phones as either good or excellent. とはどういう意味ですか?
A: This is the way people talk to make polls sound better than they usually are.

If we assume
1-3 is bad
4-6 is good
7-10 is excellent

They intend for you to think a whole lot of people thought they were excellent. But in fact the statement is true if not a single person said it was excellent.

「Majority」の類語とその違い

Q: vast majority と overwhelming majority はどう違いますか?
A: They are very close and you could use both. Overwhelming sounds like a little more than vast but really they’re the same.
Q: majority と major はどう違いますか?
A: Okay. It wasn’t a bad attempt - I understood most of the sentence I just didn’t understand ‘destination’. I would say “The majority of graduate students from both categories chose to enter a higher academic program. “ or “The major destination for graduate students from both categories was a higher academic program.” ^^
Q: majority と preponderance はどう違いますか?
A: Both are synonymous, but "preponderance" also has the meaning of domination over something. For example: "Europe had preponderance over Germany during WW2."
The majority of English speakers would not use/understand the word "preponderance".
Q: most of them と the majority of them はどう違いますか?
A: The book hasn’t phrased it very well. “The majority of” is definitely used for more than half, but “most” is used for that as well. It would be very strange to use ‘most’ for anything other than more than half also! :)
Q: the majority of doctors と most doctors はどう違いますか?
A: " A majority of doctors" is more specific than "most doctors" because "majority" refers to more than half(50%) of a group of countable nouns(doctors), whereas "most" is more general and refers to the greatest number of something. Thus, they have almost identical meanings, but a "majority of doctors" can be seen as more specific since it refers to over 50% of all doctors referenced.

Q: When you say, "the vast majority" of something, how much percent of the total stuff do you mean by this expression? 60%? 90%?
A: Since "vast" is a very vague term, I personally use it how it suits my purposes. If I want to make a point that some idea I'm promoting is popular, I could say the "vast majority" of Canadians, for example, support my idea, even if it's only like 55%. Technically I'm not wrong, since it is a majority, and, at over 15 million people, it is "vast". Personally, to me it could be anywhere from 51 - 99%, but higher percentages are more likely than lower ones.
Q: I know exactly how stupid the majority of you all are. この表現は自然ですか?
