The rest of this teaching unit examines the problems of agreement that may result from the placement of words in sentences. There are four main problems: prepositional sentences, clauses that start with who, this, or who, sentences that start here or there, and questions. A prepositional sentence can be placed between the subject and the verb. The rules of the subject verb agreement apply to all personal pronouns, except me and you, which, although SINGULAIRE, require plural forms of verbs. This sentence uses a compound subject (two subject nouns that are related and related), illustrating a new rule on the subject-verbal agreement. When used in the plural, group substitutions mean more than one group. Therefore, a plural verb is used. 3. Group substitutions can be administered to plural forms to mean two or more units and thus take a plural verb.
Although you are probably already familiar with the basic thematic-verbal agreements, this chapter begins with a quick review of the basic agreement rules. You can check the verb by replacing the pronoun for the compound subject. What form of verb to use in this case? Should the verb be singular to accept in one word? Or should the verb be plural to accept the other? The car is the unique subject. What is the singular verb helping that corresponds to the car? However, if we are not careful, we can wrongly describe drivers as subject, because it is closer to the verb than the car. If we choose the plural noun, Horseman, we wrongly choose the plural verb. SUBJECT-VERBE RULE #1 Two or more singular (or plural) subjects that are linked by a pluralistic composite subject and act as subjects of plural compound and adopt a plural (singular – singular – plural). However, the rules of agreement apply to the following helping verbs when used with a main protocol: is-are, were-were, has-have, do-do-do. A clause that begins with whom, the one or the others, and the coming between the subject and the verb, can cause insequements. Like prepositionphrase, the who/clause never contains the subject. 4. Remember the indeterminate Pronoun EXCEPTIONS, which is dealt with in section 3.5, p.18: Some, Any, None, All and Most.
The number of these subjects is influenced by a prepositionphrase between the subject and the verb. Note: Two or more plural topics that are bound by or not would naturally use a plural verb to accept. Subjects and verbs must be among them in numbers (singular or plural) together AGREE.
