9. In sentences beginning with “there is” or “there,” the subject follows the verb. As “he” is not the subject, the verb corresponds to the following.

Have you ever received the “subject/verb agreement” as an error on a paper? This prospectus helps you understand this common grammar problem. 11. Expressions such as .B. with, including, accompanied by, add or not change the number of theme. If the subject is singular, the verb is also. 4.
Is not a contraction of not and should only be used with a singular theme. Don`t is a contraction of no and should only be used with a plural theme. The exception to this rule occurs in the case of the first person and the second person Pronouns I and you. For these pronouns, contraction should not be used. 7. Names such as citizens, mathematics, dollars, measles and news require singular verbs. Note: The word dollar is a special case. When we talk about a money supply, we need a singular verb, but if we refer to the dollars themselves, a plural verb is necessary. 1.

Names such as scissors, pliers, pants and scissors require plural verbs. (There are two parts of these things.) 2. If two or more individual names or pronouns are bound by or even, use a singular verb. 5.
Don`t be misled by a sentence that comes between the subject and the verb. The verb is in agreement with the subject, not with a name or pronoun in the expression.
