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. The verb (i.e. the verb in the predicate) corresponds to the subject in person and in number. For example, I work; We/she work; my brother works; My brothers are working. It is preferable to use a subject with a singular subject and a plural subject to place the plural noun closest to the verb or to rewrite the sentence completely to avoid clumsiness. A composite subject consists of two (or more) subjects linked by conjunctions. In sentences with more than one theme (a compound subject), the word usually appears and appears between the elements. 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 principles of subject and predicate compliance 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. If you decide to put a topic according to a verb, be sure to review the agreement. As the subject is composed, you need the plural form of the verb. 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 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 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. Physics has always been a difficult subject for me. Pay attention to the sentences and clauses that come between the subject and the predicate in one sentence.

To make sure you have the right person and number for the verb, mentally remove sentences and clauses in between. The difficult cases of the subject verb chord are described below in numbers. 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. Choose the correct form of the verb that matches the theme. 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.
