Then the part of this lesson will be reviewed and re-unred. With a Power Point presentation, I recapitulate a short lesson on singular and plural names and verbs. While I teach the rules of the subject-verb agreement, I ask my students to copy notes in their diaries. 19. If two or more subjects are linked by nor or or related, the verb is used according to the number of the nearest name: Students who receive all the answers correctly then get the subject verb agreement (B). This sheet is more difficult and requires a synthesis of the information taught. It does not contain a word bank and invites students to determine which name (s) has determined whether a singular or plural verb has been used. I tell them that they have to pay attention to the collective nouns I explain, are names that describe a group (like friends) or words like “everyone” and “everyone,” and they let them all know that they accept singular verbs. For some of my students, this understanding will take a little more training and time to master. Question 3. Enter a verb in the drafts in accordance with its theme.
(a) No news………………. Good news. (b) The girl and the boy……………… Missing. (c) A third of the city………………. flooded. (d) “The Three Idiots” ……………. Director: Raju Hirani. e) Bhagwan Das, the writer, and the poet, ……………….
death. (f) saffron, white and green………………. The colours of the Indian flag. g) chicken and cheese……………. My favorite breakfast. (h) the crew………………… Forced to get off the plane. (i) The ship with its crew, …………… untraceable. j) No one agreed.
there………………………. many objections to the proposal. Answer: (a) is (b) have /c) is (e) is (f) is (g) is (h) was/was (i) was (d) 16. Some nouns precede many, many, many, many, many, many, etc. These names take a singular verb if they refer to quantity or quantity. But they take a plural verb if they refer to the number: 21. If some names are considered a single entity, they adopt a singular verb: 12. Singular Nomen with plural Verb: Some names that seem to be singular in form take on a plural verb: they may think: “Why the subject-verb chord in grade 9?” Many of my students have gaps in their grammar skills for a variety of reasons. Grammar is not an exciting subject by nature. Most high school students would rather do anything other than learn and practice the laws of a sentence. Since many of my students (and perhaps some of you) need an additional grammar exam and exercise, I teach a lesson on the consistency between subjects.
20. A collective name such as the jury, committee, family, etc., takes a singular verb when it is considered an entity. But when they are considered individuals, they take a plural verb: 18. A singular verb is used with singular pronouns, for example, each. B, neither, nor anyone, etc. 13. Collective nouns such as group, crowd, herd, regiment, etc. generally follow a singular verb: 15. Some names that seem to be plural in form when a pair is preceded by a single verb, z.B. shoes, shears, pants, etc. 1.
Figure: The basic principle of the verb-subject chord is that singular subjects need singular verbs. The plural subjects need plural: 2. Person: The rules for the person are: (i) The first singular or plural person takes a singular verb: the subject and the verb must correspond in number and in person. I understand that an important aspect of learning the Go Verb Agreement is to identify learning, themes and verbs in sentences. To make the first reading more interesting and therefore more relevant, I bring some magazines and ask my students how they are doing. I then tell them to find an article that they find interesting.
