    Default partitive

    Dear teachers,

    Do we normally say: "these patterns of behaviour are unacceptable" or "these behaviour patterns are unacceptable"?

    Is there another expression / collocation which is used with "behaviour"?

    Many thanks,
    Hela

    'Behaviour patterns' seems to be ahead, but there's not a huge difference.
