Write fk(α;X)=∑x⩽Xe(α1x+⋯+αkxk) (k⩾3). We show that there is a set B⊆[0,1)k−2 of full measure with the property that whenever (α2,…,αk−1)∈B and X is sufficiently large, then sup(α1,αk)∈[0,1)2|fk(α;X)|⩽X1/2+δk, where δk=min{1330,42k−1}. For k⩾5, this improves on work of Flaminio and Forni, in which a Diophantine condition is imposed on αk, and the exponent of X is 1−2/(3k(k−1)).
