SUBJECT-VERB AGREEMENT

Slide 2

EVERY VERB MUST AGREE WITH ITS SUBJECT Plural Subject Singular Subject Singular Verb Plural Verb

Slide 3

The Stupidity of English Grammar To make a thing plural, we include – s Singular: young lady Plural: young lady s To make a verb plural, we take away the – s . Solitary: he talk s Plural: they talk

Slide 4

Singular I walk You walk He/She/It walk s Joe walk s The young lady walk s Plural We walk You walk They walk Joe and Maria walk The young ladies walk Watch the Verb Endings!

Slide 5

Remember the 3 sporadic verbs: DO Singular Plural He doe s They do HAVE She ha s They have BE He i s They are She wa s They were

Slide 6

Tip for Subject/verb Agreement Generally, if the subject doesn\'t end in –S , the verb will. On the off chance that the subject ends in –S , the verb won\'t.

Slide 7

No –S on subject - S on verb The young lady move s .

Slide 8

- S on subject The young lady s move. No –S on verb

Slide 9

Compound subjects joined by "and" If there are two or more subjects joined by and , the subject must be plural, so the verb won\'t get a "s". Illustration The kid and the young lady move. (= They move.) No –S on verb

Slide 10

Compound subjects joined by "or" If there are two or more subjects joined by or , the verb concurs with the part of the subject nearest to it. Cases: The teacher or the understudies walk the corridors. The understudies or the educator strolls the lobbies.

Slide 11

Watch out for "Everyone" Everybody love s linguistic use! Everyone comprehend s subject/verb understanding.

Slide 12

Possible Pitfalls Sometimes, a few words interfere with the subject and the verb. The understudy, however she had heaps of issues in different schools, discovers/find (?) her new class simple. The understudy , however she had heaps of issues in different schools , discovers her new class simple. The understudy discovers her new class simple.

Slide 13

Prepositional expressions The subject can never be a piece of a prepositional expression . Illustration The understudies in my class study/concentrates hard. X

Slide 14

Possible Pitfalls Sometimes, the subject will come after the verb, in inquiries or when sentence starts with there . Cases Why is he nodding off? Why are they nodding off? There is no reason for such conduct. There are no reasons for such conduct.

Slide 15

Possible Pitfalls Relative Pronouns ( who/which/that ) can be either particular or plural, contingent upon the word they allude to. The understudy who work s hard will succeed. The understudy s who buckle down will succeed.

Slide 16

How would I get this privilege? To begin with, distinguish regardless of whether you have issues with subject/verb assention. On the off chance that you don\'t have any issues with this, don\'t stress over it! In the event that you do have issues Identify the verb. Ask who or what is doing it. This will recognize the subject. Let\'s assume them together and ensure that they coordinate as far as number.

Slide 17

The subject and verb are the skeleton of each sentence. Ensure you fit those two essential parts together effectively!
