Singular & Plural Subject & Verb Agreement Grammar Help Game Tips:
- If the subject of a sentence is singular, then the verb must also be singular.
- If the subject of a sentence is plural, then the verb must also be plural.
- In the sentence 'A bird sings in the tree.', the subject 'bird' is singular, and the verb 'sings' is singular.
- In the sentence 'Birds sing in the tree.', the subject (=noun) 'Birds' is plural, and the verb 'sing' is plural.
- Notice that adding an 's' to a noun can make it plural, but for verbs it's different.
- The noun 'bird' is singular since it refers to one bird.
- The noun 'birds' is plural since it refers to more than one bird.
- Most plural nouns end in an 's' or an 'es'. Examples: toys, students, cars, glasses, buses, etc...
Exceptions include: teeth, feet, children, geese, etc...
- In contrast, an 's' added to the present tense of a verb often makes the verb singular.
