Transcript

  • 1. Subject-Verb Agreement
  • 2. What is a subject?
    • - The subject of a sentence is the person, place, thing, or idea that is doing or being something .
    • Examples
    • - Builders are at work.
    • - The large car stopped outside our house.
  • 3.
    • A subject can be-
    • 1 . Singular
    • e.g. a pen, a body, a box
    • 2. Plural
    • e.g. children, plates, boxes
    • 3. Uncountable
    • e.g. furniture , sugar
  • 4. What is a verb?
    • A verb is a word which describes the action in a sentence (the doing word)
    • Examples
    • - I play football.
    • - They skip quickly.
    • - We eat spaghetti.
    • - Bob is seven today .
  • 5.
    • Therefore, all nouns can be either countable or uncountable.
    • Some nouns look as if they are plural but are in fact singular.
    • Eg:- Politics has been the most important thing in his life for many years.
  • 6.
    • Verbs can be either singular or plural .
    • SINGULAR VERB
    • Eg:- Acoustics is the study of the behavior of sound.
    • PLURAL VERB
    • Eg:- The acoustics in this hall are terrible .
  • 7. Subject-Verb Agreement
    • Subjects and verbs must AGREE with one another in number (singular or plural).  Thus, if a subject is singular, its verb must also be singular; if a subject is plural, its verb must also be plural.
    • In present tenses, nouns and verbs form plurals in opposite ways:  
    •      nouns ADD an s to the singular form,
    •           BUT
    •      verbs REMOVE an s from the singular form.
    •
