Subject-Verb Agreement Problem

A clause that begins with whom, the one or the others, and the coming between the subject and the verb, can cause insequements. However, the rules of agreement apply to the following helping verbs when used with a main protocol: is-are, were-were, has-have, do-do-do. The rest of this teaching unit examines the problems of agreement that may result from the placement of words in sentences. There are four main problems: prepositional sentences, clauses that start with who, this, or who, sentences that start here or there, and questions. So far, we have examined topics that can create confusion of the subject-verb agreement: composite themes, group subjects, singular plural topics of meaning, and unspecified topics. Thus, there are three main rules of agreement on the subject that must be remembered when a group noun is used as a subject: the rules of the subject-verb agreement apply to all personal pronouns except me and to you, which, although SINGULAIRE, require plural forms of verbs. In other words, as mentioned above, if he, he or he could be used in place of the subject, we (third person) have a singular agreement, but if we could use it instead of the subject, we have a pluralistic agreement. This is what is shown in the box below. This sentence contains an error in the subject verb agreement.

The theme of the sentence is “reports,” so the verb “a” must be changed to “have” in the plural to approve the plural theme “reports.” However, the fact that the subject-verb agreement generally has no influence on the meaning or interpretation of certain sentences and the possibility that the agreement on the subject-verb may seem unnecessary from the Swedish point of view does not mean that we can ignore the verb-subject agreement in English. Indeterminate pronouns can pose particular problems with the cremation agreement of subjects. The rest of this teaching unit deals with some more advanced rules for the agreement of specialized verbs and exceptions to the original article-verb agreement rule These rules of agreement do not apply to verbs used in the simple past without helping verbs. However, there are several cases where the facts are more complicated. Otherwise, a verb-subject contract would not be as important a topic for people who write in English. Some of the most complex cases are now listed and presented in an exemplary manner and, in some cases, briefly debated.
