    Default Is this sentence correct, regarding structure and vocabulary choice?

    Adolescents used less percent of the Nehbandani linguistic variables; instead, they used
    more percent of Standard Persian variables compared with adult literate and illiterate informants.


    Nehbandani is a dialect.

    Those are my suggestions. However, maybe "variables" is correctly used, although it sounds strange to me.
