Re glacials/glaciaux and finals/finaux

Hi, Just to confirm that glacials/glaciaux and finals/finaux can be interchanged, with no rule as to when to use each one? Thanks, Catherine

This relates to:

Bonjour Catherine !

Yes that's correct, both spellings are perfectly acceptable and interchangeable.

One of the Kwizbot B1 tests marked "glaciaux" as wrong in a multiple choice question. It would only accept "glacials."

Yes because it was teaching the 'ls' exceptions

Bonjour Susan !

I've looked through all our questions, and they all accept glaciaux as a correct alternate answer.
Do you have the specific question in mind by any chance?

Merci et à bientôt !
