Many moved to the lowland cities to work for emerging heavy industry.

Is this sentence correct? Can I use only "many" instead of "many people"? Should an article be added to "industry"? Like "for the emerging heavy industry"?

The context is: During the Highland Clearances, the population decreased significantly. Many moved to the lowland cities to work for emerging heavy industry.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Eff, I don't think I've had the chance to welcome you to the forums yet, so welcome. Yes, you scan say "Many" instead of "Many people." Yes, you should have an article "the" before "emerging heavy industry."

Hi,
Many moved to the lowland cities to work for emerging heavy industry.

Is this sentence correct? Yes
Can I use only "many" instead of "many people"? Yes
Should an article be added to "industry"? Like "for the emerging heavy industry"?No article is fine, if you want to make a very general reference like this.

The context is: During the Highland Clearances, the population decreased significantly. Many moved to the lowland cities to work for emerging heavy industry.

We don't usually use the term 'heavy industry' in connection with the 18th. century.

Best wishes, Clive
