I was reading a text on the internet and I came across something like this written by a non-native guy:

With the come of the new methods/procedures, we can perform [whatever] faster.

  1. Is it natural to say "with the come of ..."?
  2. What other ways are there to imply the same meaning?

Thanks in advance

    "...the coming." – Cascabel Apr 5 '20 at 20:42
  • @Rattler Yeah that sounds better, thanks. (I knew there is something wrong with that sentence lol) – navid.h Apr 5 '20 at 20:43
  • There are probably better words to use. – Cascabel Apr 5 '20 at 20:45

    Maybe arrival, or implementation? – Cascabel Apr 5 '20 at 20:48

    @Rattler OR appearance or introduction? – BoldBen Apr 5 '20 at 21:29

Another way to say "with the come of" is "with the advent of" (advent descends etymologically from a word that means "come", according to etymonline.com):

advent noun [ S ] uk /ˈæd.vent/ /ˈæd.vənt/ us /ˈæd.vent/ /ˈæd.vənt/ the fact of an event happening, an invention being made, or a person arriving:

"Life was transformed by the advent of the steam engine."

"The advent of the gramophone transformed the cultural conditions of contemporary music, including the way it was taught."

Or "with the emergency of", from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4433644/

Recently, with the emergency of microarray technology that can monitor thousands of genes simultaneously, gene biomarkers are being detected for oral cancers. For example, Saintigny et al. [2] defined a 29-transcripts signature while Kondoh et al. [3] defined another 11-genes signature that can help separate oral cancers developed from OLKs from normal OLKs.

    Neither I nor my nearest dictionary know this meaning of "emergency". Are you sure it wasn't a typo (in the linked paper) for "emergence"? – Andreas Blass Apr 6 '20 at 3:31
  • No, I'm not sure, it was an automatic suggestion by ludwig.guru/s/with+the+emergency+of , truth be told. However, the same search revealed more than one instance. Still, "emergence" does seem to be a better fit. Should I edit? – Conrado Apr 6 '20 at 4:00
