No (More) Doubt

The Band "No Doubt"

Please stop saying, “I have a doubt”.  This phrase doesn’t exist in English!

When you need more information (clarification) or don’t understand, the normal phrasing is, “I have a question.”

There is an expression “I have my doubts” which means “I am suspicious” or “I don’t trust this situation”, but that is another situation.

Ex: I have a question: does this job offer professional development? (clarification)

Ex: They said the job offers professional development, but I have my doubts. (suspicion)
