I am being told that this sentence is not in a proper construction:
"Answers arrive in a piecemeal fashion."
Neither Book Google nor standard Google search yields a single result using quotation marks, which seem to support the claim. However, I cannot find what is wrong with it. I have used variations, but with little success.
"Answers arrive piecemeal."
"Answers come through bit by bit."
I notice that "arrive piecemeal" is appropriate, given that "piecemeal" is an adverb, in which case is modifying the verb "arrive." The same with "through bit by bit," and even "Answers come through." I have also seen a few examples of "arrive in a piecemeal manner." Would the problem be with using "answers" as a plural noun rather than a singular verb?
I could use your help (if this is not the appropriate forum, please, let me know). Thanks
