Hi,

Is it more correct to say a 16" boy's bike or a boy's 16" bike?

It depends on how tall the boy is. Emotion: big smile

Better say the latter.

Hi Clive,

Just wondering whether a boy can be 16" tall Emotion: smile
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I disagree with Clive, as I think "a 16 inch boy's bike" sounds more natural than "a boy's 16 inch bike". I don't think it's confusing because, honestly, how many boys are there in the world who are 16 inches tall?
i agree with ScratchThat. A bike made for a 16" boy would be more accurately known as a "16 inch-boy bike" wouldnt it?
