If the compound subject is according to the predicate expressed by “it exists; there are” (there was; there was, etc.), the verb is generally correct in the number with the next topic. The nouns that can be a problem for language learners in terms of number match (for example. B, sheep, deer, fish, silver, planes, HQ, statistics, mumps) are described in irregular plurals in the letter section. If the subject is expressed by an indeterminate pronoun (z.B everyone, someone), sex is not known, but it is quite possible that men and women are involved. The male pronoun “being” has traditionally been used in such cases in language and writing: each has its own opinion. Choose the correct form of the verb that matches the theme. If a personal pronoun in lieu of a noun in the question of the subject (me, you, she, us, you, her) or in the object (me, you, she, she, she, us, she, her, the pronoun should correspond to her name of person, number and sex. The verb BE has more forms for conformity with the subject in person and in numbers: I am; Whether he/she is; We/they are; my brother is; My brothers are; I/he/she/it was; we/they were; my brother was; They were my brothers. In a sentence a possessive pronoun must correspond personally, the number and the sex with the Nostun or the pronoun to which it refers. Standard chords are shown in the following examples.
Money sum, periods, distance, weights expressed by phrases such as “ten dollars; Five thousand” in the subject are treated as singular (as a unit) and take a singular verb. The general rule of the subject-verb agreement in the number is this: the subject in the singular requires the verb in the singular. The subject in the plural requires the verb in the plural. 15. Mathematics (is, are) John`s favorite subject, while Civics (is) Andreas the preferred subject. During this English lesson, you will learn some more advanced cases of subject-verb tuning that confuse many learners. The agreement between subject matter and the predicate in numbers is often a problem for language learners. The choice of the singular or plural form of the verb depends not only on the singular or plural form of the subject, but also on the singular or plural interpretation of the subject. The subject, which is plural in form, but singular in the sense (z.B.
physical), adopts a singular verb. The subject, which is singular in form, but plural in meaning (for example.B. humans) takes on a plural verb. If one subject is in the singular form and the other subject in the plural form is in such sentences, it is best to place the plural subject last and use the plural form of the verb. For example, neither the teacher nor the students were able to explain it. The verb corresponds in number with the subject, not with the name in the predicate, which is according to the verb, and not with the name in the attribute sentence that is between the subject and the verb. First you`ll find the theme, then make the verb match with the theme. Comparison: The general principles of coherence between the theme and the predicate are described in this paper. The agreement between personal and possessive pronouns with subtantifs or pronouns, to which they refer, is described at the end of this document.
