Example (iii) illustrates that a set of verbs consisting of a combination of a finished verb and an unfinished verb is always over. Pluriel (-s ending) Nomen has a no-S-end verb Here we see the kind of inverted disagreement: a singular noun (time) is not consistent with a plural verb, probably because of the proximity of plural selfies. It should be the only time… That`s when he`s with you. Some grammars call this interference by proximity an attraction, a false attraction, a blind concordance or the principle of proximity. The use of the words «less» and «less» or «amount» and «number» requires knowledge of the difference between innumerable subtantes and substantes. As a general rule, the use of «less» or «numbers» requires a nostunon that you can count physically or in a tangible way. Using «less» or «amount» requires nouns that you can`t simply define with a certain number. For example, «raindrops» can be counted individually, while «rain» refers to the collective set. Other periods when the singular or plural forms of a word can influence the chord in a sentence, if you use so-called «indeterminate pronouns.» These include words such as «everyone,» «both,» «a lot» or «all.» Whether the singular or plural form of the noun should be used according to this indeterminate pronoun depends on whether the pronoun you have chosen relates to nouns separately or collectively. Clauses, phrases and verbs are either finished or not finished. A clause is finally finished when the verb used to preach the clause is finished. The final sentence, when it is noticed, deserves to be emphasized.
The examples of MWDEU, as well as the examples I cite above and the ones I see every week in documents I publish, all reflect the frequency of these errors and the need for editorial vigilance. The second example (2) illustrates the same fact. The only difference is that the head of the subject-name sentence is now plural (human), while the head of the NP is closest to the predicate, i.e. the supplement in the prepositionphrase, which acts as a post-modator for leading men, is singular (English). Renee, I`ll give you a more difficult example: «The common judgment of the various federal appelne courts of the United States of America… was the… « ; instead of «…… It was… Here we have many prepositions of sentences between the subject of the phrase «govern» and the verb «was.» With regard to the agreement between the subject and the word, all intermediate sentences (including dependent clauses) should be ignored. D.A.W. YES, YES, YES! This is also a case in grammar, the SI OFTEN is misused in advertisers/participants in TV spots, and by presenters/reporters, and by politicians in the air. Here, «Diana» is a unique nomineuse.
It therefore needs a singular verb (written). Some buildings have a foot in the singulars and plural camps. Nouns such as the team, the jury and the committee can also be, as long as the grammar is consistent internally – it is a form of fictitious agreement. The singulars themselves and names like politics also come under fictitious agreement, as well as composite subjects that can be considered as a single concept: jelly and ice is my favorite. «Singers» is a plural noun, which means it needs a plural verb (writing). Hello, Renee, In the sentence in question: The patchwork (federal and regional regulations) companies have great uncertainty as to how to satisfy, note that the preposition phrase «federal and state regulations» is an «adjective phrase» that changes the real theme of the sentence that is «patchwork». «Patchwork» is singular, and the verb of the sentence must therefore correspond to: «The patchwork… a «instead of the fake» Patchwork… » Noun phrases can indicate the person (first, second or third) and the number (singular or plural).
