We will use the standard to highlight themes once and verbs twice. The ability to find the right topic and verb will help you correct the errors of the subject verb agreement. Joe should not follow, was not, since Joe is unique? But Joe isn`t really there, so let`s say that wasn`t the case. The sentence shows the subjunctive mind used to express things that are hypothetical, desirable, imaginary or objectively contradictory. The connective subjunctive mind pairs individual subjects with what we usually consider plural verbs. In contemporary times, names and verbs form essays in the opposite way: the example above implies that other people besides Hannah like to read comics. Therefore, the plural verb is the correct form to use. Note: The word dollar is a special case. When we talk about a money supply, we need a singular verb, but if we refer to the dollars themselves, a plural verb is necessary.
Article 1. A theme will be in front of a sentence that will begin. It is a key rule for understanding the subjects. The word is the culprit in many, perhaps most, subject-word errors. Hassic writers, speakers, readers and listeners might regret the all-too-frequent error in the following sentence: 8) Katie or three girls go to the office. (The girl is closer, so the verb is plural) 1. A sentence or clause between the subject and the verb does not change the subject`s number. 11. Expressions such as .B. with, including, accompanied by, add or not change the number of theme. If the subject is singular, the verb is also.
Example: The list of items is on the desktop. If you know that the list is the topic, then choose for the verb. 10) Neither the tray nor the cups were removed. (Cups is closer, so the verb is plural) Article 5 bis. Sometimes the subject is separated from the verb by such words, as with, as well as, except, no, etc. These words and phrases are not part of the subject. Ignore them and use a singular verb if the subject is singular. The first example expresses a wish, not a fact; Therefore, what we usually consider plural is used with the singular. (Technically, this is the singular theme of the object clause in the subjunctive mind: it was Friday.) Usually, it would look awful.
