I rather like this construct, as exemplified by “a three-pronged approach to physical therapy” (or four-pronged, or whatever). However, I tend to use it too much, and I am wondering how I could replace it by other short constructs with the same meaning. So, I wonder:
- Does “a three-fold approach to…” have the same meaning? I think it does, as my dictionary says of the -fold suffix: “consisting of so many parts or facets”.
- Do you know other ways to express this in only two or three words? It being a short adjectival phrase is useful to me.
