While you`re probably already familiar with the basic subject-verb agreement, this chapter begins with a brief overview of the basic rules of the agreement. Pronouns like all, plus, none and some take their meaning from the word to which they refer (which is often found in a sentence after the pronoun): on the other hand, there is an indefinite pronoun, none that can be singular or plural; It often doesn`t matter if you use a singular or a plural, unless something else in the sentence determines its number. * 👉 If you use the pronouns er, she and she, add “s” at the end of the basic verse to bring it to the present. However, the rules of the agreement apply to the following auxiliaries when used with a main verb: is-are, was-were, has-have, does-do. These matching rules do not apply to verbs used in the simple past tense without auxiliary verbs. 1. Group substortives can be considered a unit and therefore assume a singular verb. Note: Two or more plural subjects linked by or (or) would of course need a plural agreement to get along. 3.
Group nouns can be given in the plural to mean two or more units and thus assume a plural agreement. Neither pronouns are singular and require singularverben, although in some ways they seem to refer to two things.
