What is a standard way of notating sub-hypotheses? Should it be H1, H1b, H1c?
I’m revising a paper for a French author, and she’s written them with bis and ter, as in:
H1 (“cultural assimilation” hypothesis). Immigrants of Asian descent ... [then]
H1bis. The aforementioned effect is stronger ... [then]
H1ter ... .
I’ve never seen that before, but then again, there are a lot of things I haven’t seen.
