I was looking for a noun to describe a temporary state for something, and unsurprisingly found "temporariness" in Merriam-Webster, defined as:
the state or quality of lasting only for a short time.
The temporariness of the job is probably the reason why so few people are applying for it.
I understand the above meaning of "temporariness" and its usage, but somehow it doesn't seem idiomatic to me. Maybe because I haven't seen it used anywhere, either colloquial or academic/formal.
And the synonyms listed by M-W don't help that much:
ephemerality, evanescence, fleetingness, fugitiveness, impermanence, impermanency, momentariness, transience, transiency, transitoriness
My intended usage:
I quoted a definition in my text that went like "That concept is considered as a basis for a time to provide [...]."
Now, as a reference to the above definition, I wanted to say "The [temporariness?] of the the concept is an important aspect, which we often overlook in its definition"
So, is there a more idomatic alternative to this word?
