    different

    Hello folks!

    What is the difference between the two following sentences?

    "The relationship(s) between stroke and different risk factors" vs "The relationship(s) between stroke and risk factors".

    What difference does the word "different" make?


    Best regards,
    Johnny

    They are not sentences.

    We need complete sentences to make meaningful replies.

    Speaking as a person who has academic physicians as children, I would say they always speak like this. They are totally unconcerned with the niceties of grammar.
