Formal Subject-Verb Agreement

9 Aralık 2020

(42) We must understand that [native English speakers] more or less automatically get an agreement between thematic verbs. Modern Swedish has no agreement between the subject verb. Swedish uses the same form of contemporary verb, the same form of past verb, the same future construction, etc., regardless of the number (singular/plural) and the person (first/second/third) of the subject. Countless nouns are always treated as singular when it comes to a verb-subject agreement: 4. Correct errors in the subject-verb agreement in the next paragraph. Copy the paragraph on a notebook paper and make corrections. In the case of verbs, a gender agreement is less widespread, although it may still occur. In the French past, for example, the former work of the participants corresponds, in certain circumstances, to the subject or an object (for more details, see compound past). In Russian and most other Slavic languages, the form of the past in sex corresponds to the subject. On the contrary, native Speakers of English react strongly to errors of subject-verbal agreement (also known as concord error), much like native Swedish speakers are highlighted on erroneous phrases such as the two substantive phrases singulated in each example (boldface), and thus the singular verb.

The corresponding pluralistic verb appears in parentheses to indicate that it is an alternative in less formal modes of writing and speech. The basic subject-verb chord rule in English is very simple. He says that a single subject takes a singular verb, while a plural subject takes on a plural verb. However, there are some problems with this wording of the rule that should be mentioned. If you are looking for an exception to the assertion that the reference agreement has no influence on interpretation, try using a subject with zero plural, p.B sheep. Note that the normal order of words (verb-subject) is reversed or reversed (verb subject). The word is not the subject. It is important to identify the subject and make sure the verb matches him. The rule also suggests that a pluralistic agreement is important at all times. That is not true either. With the exception of the verb, the subject-verb agreement takes place only in the present.

So what we really need to remember, if we simplify the situation a bit is to put a -s on the verb in the singular of the third person (and the good forms of being, having, doing, and verbs like trying and denying who tries and denies in the singular of the third person).
