A subject of + pluralist: if the subject is composed of a “noun + plural”, is the singular verb: 11. Plural nouns with singular meaning: nouns that are plural, but singularly important, usually adopt a singular verb: first, I choose some examples of students` work and project them onto a screen with a docucamera. I will talk about the students` answers and why or why their circled subject-verb chords are correct. 3. Incalculable noun: If we use an incalculable subject as the subject of a verb, we use a singular form of the verb: 8. Two or more nouns: If two or more subjects act as a subject, a plural verb is used: 12.

A collective noun such as jury, committee, family, etc., adopts a singular verb when it is considered an entity. But if they are considered individuals, they take a plural abbreviation: the continuation is the repetition and repetition of this lesson. With a Power Point presentation, I recap a brief lesson on singular and plural nouns and verbs. While I teach the rules of subject-verb agreement, I ask my students to copy notes into their diaries. 16. Some names are preceded by many, many, many, etc. These nouns adopt a singular verb when they refer to quantity or quantity. But they take a plural verb when they refer to the number: they may think, “Why the subject-verb agreement in 9th? Many of my students have gaps in their grammar skills for a variety of reasons.

Most high school students would rather do almost anything other than learn and practice the laws of sentence construction.
