Singular nouns with plural verb: Some nouns that appear to be singular adopt a plural verb: in these sentences, break-ins and bed and breakfast are compound nouns. Exception 3: If two singular subelements refer to the same person or thing, even if they are associated and connected, the verb is singular. The subject and verb must match in number and person. 6. Long subject: If a sentence or a long group of words is the subject, we must be careful that the verb corresponds to the subject: Directions: Underline the correct verb in these sentences. 1. Sohna (races, races) goes to the park every day. 2. Dogs (bark, bark,) at strangers.

When we use a singular noun as the subject of a verb, we use a singular verb.

Plural nouns assume a plural verb: Rule 1. A singular subject takes the verb to the singular and a plural subject takes the verb to the plural. Note: All English verbs are plural, we make them singular by adding s s or it to the verb. Examples: (i) Naina goes for a walk every day. (ii) The workers go on strike. Section 3. If two singular justifications refer to the same person, the verb must be in the singular. Examples: In the example, a statement of wish, not a fact, is expressed; Therefore, what we generally consider a plural verb is used with the singular subject.

Rule 7: Collective nouns such as family, couple, personal, public, etc. assume a singular verb. Article 9.
