In the construction of the sentence, there is or there are, the word never exists the subject. These sentence constructions are usually passive and vague, so it is best to limit them. If you have one or use one, remember that your subject follows the predicate. Choose there if the theme is singular, and it exists when the theme is plural. Note: Two or more plural topics that are bound by or not would naturally use a plural verb to accept. This composite subject therefore requires a singular verb to accept it. When a sentence begins, there are / here, the subject and the verb are reversed. After all you`ve already learned, there`s no doubt you`ll find this topic relatively simple! 3. Compound themes that are bound by and are always plural. 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. Their first task is to find the object of the sentence.
To do this, you will find the verb, the word of action or the word of state, and then decide who or what we are talking about. So ask yourself: is the subject the first person (me/us), the second person (she) or the third person (him, she, she/she)? Is the subject singular or plural? Once you have answered these questions, you will know what form the verb should take. Singular subjects take singular verbs, and plural subjects take plural verbs. The rules of the subject verb agreement apply to all personal pronouns, except me and you, which, although SINGULAIRE, require plural forms of verbs. 20. Last rule: Remember, only the subject acts on the verb! Everything else doesn`t matter. 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. 17.
When geriatrics are used as the object of a sentence, they adopt the singular form of the verb. However, when they are bound by words «and,» they take the form of the plural. Money sums, periods, distances, weight expressed by phrases like «ten dollars»; Five thousand» in the subject are treated as singular (as a unit) and take a singular verb.
