Title: Subject-Verb Agreement


1
Subject-Verb Agreement
  • A Project LA Activity

2
Basic Rule
  • Singular subjects need singular verbs.
  • Plural subjects need plural verbs.

3
These create problems
  • Pronouns such as everyone and everybody seem
    plural, but they are always singular so they
    need a singular verb.

1. Everyone who worked on the science project
is a winner.
2. Someone has to answer the phone.
4
These create problems
  • Phrases that come between the subject pronoun and
    its verb may contain plural words and confuse.

Each of the basketball players is excited about
tonights game.
5
These create problems
  • Verbs that accompany pronouns such as all and
    some will be determined by whether the pronoun is
    referring to something that is COUNTABLE or not.

1. Some of the workers on the building have left
for the day.
You could count the workers.
6
These create problems
  • Verbs that accompany pronouns such as all and
    some will be determined by whether the pronoun is
    referring to something that is COUNTABLE or not.

1. Some of the salt was spilled on the floor.
Salt is considered one lump item.
7
These create problems
  • None is usually regarded as singular, but it can
    be used as a plural pronoun.

None of the boys has helped at the game. OR
None of the boys have helped at the game.
Either is correct!
8
These create problems
  • Phrases such as together with, along with, and as
    well as seem to combine subjects, but they do not
    .

Some of the tile in our room, as well as the
hall, was soaked. The major problem we had,
together with that of our teacher, was tardiness.
Dont be fooled by extra phrases!
9
These create problems
  • When either and neither appear as a subject alone
    (without the words or and nor), they are singular.

1. Either of those answers seems to be right.
2. You can have the bed by the window or the
one by the door. Either is okay with me.
Seems like plural things!
10
These create problems
  • The words there and here are never subjects.
  1. Here are the papers you gave me.
  2. Here is my answer.

Here is not the subject.
11
These create problems
  • Verbs in the present tense for third-person,
    singular subjects (he, she, it and anything those
    words can stand for) have s-endings. Other verbs
    do not add s-endings.
  1. He asks for help.
  2. She asks for help.
  3. They ask for help.

Tricky subject pronouns
