I want to find a way to convey the meaning of 'not being entrenched' and at the same time maintaining a formal / academic tone. The sentence I'm working with is:
The market share leader board is becoming incrementally _________.
For context: There is reshuffling of ranks at all segments of the leader board now (whereas in the past it was very static/entrenched).
My early attempts included (and reasons why rejected):
- 'fluid' (seems too modernist)
- 'dynamic' (while the opposite of static, seems too abstract here)
- 'less entrenched' (unwieldy. I'm not 100% happy with using entrenched to describe a leader board)
What is an academic word that can convey that the leader board is 'less set in stone'? If there is no one magic word, a phrase would likely suffice.
