sous jacents

Is it the case that “sous jacents” must be hyphenated, i.e. “sous-jacents”?

Bonjour Brian,

Thank you for pointing this out! You are both right. It should be hyphenated. It has now been corrected. 

Merci beaucoup et bonne journée !

Hi Brian,

I would say:            yes!

This a dual-word adjective, and in English we would hyphenate and I understand that it is true in French also.
