Substitute 'failing' for 'falling through' and you should have your answer.I wish to ask about the use of the word 'not' in conjuction with 'falling through'.
I understand the term 'falling through' is usually referred to as something haing 'failed' or 'cancelled'. However, at other occasions, I have also heard people using it to mean 'getting through'.
I haven't heard it to mean 'getting through', Edmond, though I could be missing the necessary context in my mind.
In this case, can you please advise how the following statement should be used if I wish to convey the meaning of an unsuccessful closure of a business deal. Should it be 'business deals not falling through', or should it be 'business deals falling through'?
Whether as an employee or in business capacity, I have experienced many occasions of incomplete projects fulfillment and business deals [not] falling through.Your advice is greatly appreciated.
