Subject Verb Agreement And Collective Nouns

Filed under: Uncategorized — ירון @ 5:06 pm

I actually thought they are people who love you because “people” is plural, it takes singular verb, but someone told me that his “people love you” because “people” may seem plural, but it`s counted as a singular. One thing I read and hear, which draws my attention to what is said in the way that is said, is the agreement of numbers. For example, someone might say, “My biggest fear is heart attacks.” Obviously, the spokesperson fears “a heart attack” or simply a “heart attack”, but so often the subject and predicate are nominative (if I remember my college English correctly) do not match the number. In my career as a judicial journalist, I have not been able to change words, but as a young writer, I have still reworded sentences to avoid this construction simply because it does not sound right. The phrase many a is followed by a singular noun and a singular verb, so write, “Many citizens of a country are willing to move away from the world.” The coordination of themes and verbs seems simple. But confusion can arise when collective names are used as subjects. The newspaper article is properly written. The rate theme is 60%. Fractions and percentages can be either singular or plural depending on the purpose of the next preposition. In this case, man is the object of the preposition of. The verb must correspond to the noun plural people. The correct plural form is at the scale of the whole. If you are still confused, please read our article When to add to a verb.

Collective names refer to individual entities composed of several individuals. Good writers will make the difference between the group, which is unique, and its components: the team goes to the playoffs.
