I know I shouldn`t disturb, but it drives me crazy to hear collective names associated with plural verbs. When I read Wikipedia, I see where “Led Zeppelin was an English rock band… That sounds fake. The fact that the group was British should not dictate that English rules should apply. I would never say, “Coca-Cola is working on a new formula.” Coca-Cola is a collective noun, so we must use a singular verb, as in “Coca-Cola IS is working on a new formula.” In our article 6 of the reference and verb convention, it says, “As a general rule, you use a plural verb with two or more subjects when they are related.” Composite nouns can act as a composite subject. In some cases, a composite theme poses particular problems for the subject-verb agreement rule (s, -s). What if one part of the composite subject is singular and the other part is plural? The object of the sentence is the plural-Nov questions, which is not a collective noun. Therefore, use the plural verb. 3. If a composite subject contains both a singular, a plural substrate or a pronoun that is bound or bound, the verb should correspond to the part of the subject that is closer to the verb. Anyone who uses a plural verb with a collective noun must be careful to be precise – and also coherent. This should not be done lightly. Here`s the kind of incorrect phrase you see and listen to these days: Note: The word dollar is a special case.

When we talk about a money supply, we need a singular verb, but if we refer to the dollars themselves, a plural verb is necessary. The correct phrase is that nearly one in four people in the world is Muslim. The subject of the sentence is one that is singular and adopts a singular verb. The rule you write about only applies to collective nouns. The word one is not a collective noun, it is a unique name. In the sentence A family of ducks rested on the grass, the object of the sentence is the family, a collective name. In this case, the author may decide to use a singular or plural verb depending on whether he considers the “family” as a unit or as a unique being within that unity. Have you ever wondered why they say she`s very pretty and doesn`t look very pretty? The answer lies in the grammatical rules on concord or verb-subject agreement.

The basic rule is that singular verbs must correspond to individual subtantives, while plural verbs must be compatible with plural substrates. What is a No. It is a word to call people, places, events, things or ideas. The verb in such constructions is or is obvious. However, the subject does not come BEFORE the verb. Article 9. For collective subtantives such as the group, the jury, the family, the public, the population, the verb can be singular or plural, depending on the author`s intention. Note: Two or more plural topics that are bound by or not would naturally use a plural verb to accept. The word there, a contraction of that, leads to bad habits in informal sentences as there are many people here today, because it is easier to say “there is” than “there is.”
