The subject is singular (with a plural in the modified prepositional sentence) and requires a singular. Good catch, Susan. I hadn`t read all the way, but I came to see if there was a printing option to print this article, to use it next week at school with my kids. Scrolling down, I noticed all the comments on #16. I must have taken a look 🙂 Mark, thank you for the good advice and memories. This site will be a great resource in our home school! 3. As subject pronouns, „who“ requires a verb. Here, the verb is either „to do“, or „to do“ or „to do“. According to the Grammatians, Wren & Martin in „High School English Grammar and Composition“ (120th edition in 1987), if the subject of the verb is a relative pronoun, the verb should correspond in number with the precursor of the parent.

Some names are always singularly and indeterminate. When these subjects become subjects, they always accept singular verbs. 11. The singular form of the verb is usually reserved for units of measure or units of tense. 4. Use plural abramination with unspecified plural pronouns: 11. Use singular or plural abraminations with collective nouns according to their meaning: 3.

Then, the object of the preposition determines the form of the verb. I believe the example is true. The verb corresponds to the subject „eccentric“ and not to „me“, that is to say in the plural. Either. Or not.

. nor, or, and again take two names before and after them. Names placed after these conjunctions are considered subjects of the sentence. Nouns that are placed before words or and again, have no influence on verbs. 8. If one of the words „everyone“, „everyone“ or „no“ is in front of the subject, the verb is singular. „I`m one of the eccentrics who don`t tweet.“ Or „Those eccentrics I`m one of don`t tweet,“ or „I`m an eccentric who doesn`t tweet,“ or „Of those eccentrics, I`m someone who doesn`t tweet.“ I tend to have the writer be the right subject, not the eccentrics. .
