    Hi,
    Is there a "normal" way to butt up two new 4x2 stud partitions in a Tee shape or should i just bang in extra studs and dwangs as seems necessary to support plasterboard at the join?.

    I take it your referring to the internal corners?

    The way I do with 3X2 it was easy, just use two uprights.
    With 4X2 I'd use three uprights, except the middle upright of the three doesn't need to be full length. It could be off-cuts used as spacers.

    3 studs in a corner/T junction.make sure you have one for each internal edge to fix your plasterboard to.
