French grammatical issue:
I disagree with a reviewer for the number of the adjective and substantive in the French sentence "des stents de petit diamètre".
I would say that "petit diamètre" is singular but the reviewer says that it should be "des stents de petits diamètres".
Can you please tell me who is right (both, none?) and what is the grammatical rule then.
thanks a lot.

Use French monolingual KudoZ Dec 14, 2004

Hi Emmanuelle

This is a perfect question for French monolingual KudoZ. I'm sure you'll have answers with references that will allow you to defend your point.

As it's not a General technical issue and it's for French, I'll move it to the French forum.
