Is the below sentence correct? I'm not sure if adding an 'a' in front of 'more' is OK.

To enable a more accurate spatial normalization process, manual re-orientation and positioning of the PET image were performed.

Thanks for your help.

  • Welcome to ELU. There is no way to answer your question without knowing what A... represents. Is it a singular or plural noun? Is it a count or uncount noun? After editing your question to make this clear, you may find the question migrated to English Language Learners, which is a more suitable site than ELU. Without editing, your question is likely to be closed. – Shoe Oct 25 '18 at 6:13
  • The whole sentence is "To enable a more accurate spatial normalization process, manual re-orientation and positioning of the PET image were performed." – JaeWon Kim Oct 25 '18 at 6:23

    Thanks. Since process is a singular count noun, you need the indefinite article a in front of the comparative adjective. – Shoe Oct 25 '18 at 6:26
  • @Shoe That's not the reason for the article. While the article is of course needed, it is for a different reason. – Kris Oct 25 '18 at 9:31
