We have a similar question here, but I think my examples are a bit different and I would love to understand how this is done correctly.
Let's say we are talking about
significantly higher thicknesses in some group
When I see this right, then significantly describes higher, while high is the description of the thicknesses. Now, I would like to say that the differences are statistically significant, but it just won't sound right to me
- statistically significant higher thicknesses in some group
- statistically significantly higher thicknesses in some group
What is the correct form to say this and why?
A very relevant example is
Seven clinically highly relevant publications
Is this correct, because both, clinically and highly describe the adjective relevant? I'm a bit lost and I would really like to understand the rules behind this.
