“A team trains. Train with two teams. I don`t see what`s complicated. Singular Substantiv = Singularverb; Plural noun = plural verblage. I read that the British feel collective names as a group of units, and that is why they use prural forms with them. We can therefore conclude that grammar rules are not always based on logic. The word while is used as a conjunction in your example game. The word refers to an act described in a previous sentence. Their sentence implies that this action is taking place, while nuclear power plants significantly reduce the consumption of fossil fuels for energy production. We cannot give any other information without seeing the previous sentence.

6 Subject-Verb Conformity – Indeterminate Singular Pronouns Write five sentences with undetermined pronouns and predations. The subject is Mr. John, the main verb is love, and playing is called infinite. See Rule 3 for searching for nouns, verbs and topics on our website GrammarBook.com. The pronoun that only concerns human beings, but it is a myth that it may not concern both human beings and things. It`s been going on for centuries. For example, the king-james version of the Bible refers to “He who is sinless.” We will recognize this use in the eleventh edition of The Blue Book of Grammar and Interctuation, which will be published in February 2014. We will also make this change on the GrammarBook.com site at that time. What is right? 1) The class disagreed on the answers. 2) The class disagreed on the answers.

It may be an exaggeration to say.” It`s a myth that it can`t relate as well to people as it does to things. Also, I`m a little surprised that you cite a 500-year-old reference from the 11th PCV of the Bible. The English of that time can create misunderstandings and confusions when trying to communicate with modern readers, that is, when Moses asked God who he was, the answer was, according to KJV: “I am that I am that I am. Hebrew means “I am who I am” (or even “I am what I am” (if you don`t mind using “that” for Personas). There are a number of well-trained people like me who prefer to use “who” for people and “that” for things. Keep up with the good work by the way. I also find the use of the plural form with collective additives problematic. One of the examples cited (the team was satisfied with their presentations) raises the question by using “she” as a prepositional pronoun. If “Team” is taken as singular, then the correct pronoun would be “he”, which gives “The team was satisfied with its presentations”. That seems to me to be quite acceptable, although the preamble is “presentations” in the plural. This appears to run counter to the alleged principle that the case is based on the plurality or nullity of the substantial prepositional. As Merriam-Webster says, the principle of fictitious concordance is simple: if the group is considered an entity, the singularverb is used; if it is considered an accumulation of individuals, the plural bee is used.

“What does Einsohn himself think of this construction? In his list of 25 frequent “Perplexities and Controversies in The Subject-Verb Agreement,” the percentage is number 20: * The New Fowler`s Modern English Usage, edited by R.W. Burchfield. Clarendon Press: Oxford, England. 1996. Use with permission from Oxford University Press. P. 242. Regarding the second sentence, Rule 8 of the agreement on subjects and verbs says: “The pronouns of each, each, everyone, everyone, someone, someone and someone are singularly and require singular verbs.” The grammatically correct sentence could be: “Would all passengers take their place please” or the heavy “Would everyone take their place?” What is the subject Verb agrement for collective names of team names, institutions or musical groups, for example, we say that Metallica releases a new album or metallica releases a new album, let`s say that Led Zeppelin dissolves or Led Zeppelin dissolves, plays Manchester United today or plays Manchester United today, or Real Madrid sells Ronaldo or Real Madrid, please help me 3. . . .
