Deductive Presentation of Lesson
June 26, 2013
Rules on Subject and Verb Agreement

Basic Rule
The basic rule states that a singular subject takes a
singular verb, while a plural subject takes a plural verb.
NOTE: The trick is in knowing whether the subject is
singular or plural. The next trick is recognizing a
singular or plural verb.
Hint: Verbs do not form their plurals by adding an s as
nouns do. In order to determine which verb is singular
and which one is plural, think of which verb you would
use with he or she and which verb you would use with
they.
Example:
talks, talk
Which one is the singular form?
Which word would you use with he?
We say, "He talks." Therefore, talks is singular.
We say, "They talk." Therefore, talk is plural.
Rule 1
Two singular subjects connected by or or nor require a
singular verb.
Example:
My aunt or my uncle is arriving by train today.
Rule 2
Two singular subjects connected by either/or or
neither/nor require a singular verb as in Rule 1.
Examples:
Neither Juan nor Carmen is available.
Either Kiana or Casey is helping today with stage
decorations.
Rule 3
When I is one of the two subjects connected by
Instructional Plan in English 7

either/or or neither/nor, put it second and follow it
with the singular verb am.
Example:
Neither she nor I am going to the festival.
Rule 4
When a singular subject is connected by or or nor to a
plural subject, put the plural subject last and use a
plural verb.
Example:
The serving bowl or the plates go on that shelf.
Rule 5
When a singular and plural subject are connected by
either/or or neither/nor, put the plural subject last and
use a plural verb.
Example:
Neither Jenny nor the others are available.
Rule 6
As a general rule, use a plural verb with two or more
subjects when they are connected by and.
Example:
A car and a bike are my means of transportation.
Rule 7
Sometimes the subject is separated from the verb by
words such as along with, as well as, besides, or not.
Ignore these expressions when determining whether to
use a singular or plural verb.
Examples:
The politician, along with the newsmen, is expected
shortly.

Excitement, as well as nervousness, is the cause of her
shaking.

Instructional Plan in English 7

Rule 8
The pronouns each, everyone, every one, everybody,
anyone, anybody, someone, and somebody are singular
and require singular verbs. Do not be misled by what
follows of.
Examples:
Each of the girls sings well.
Every one of the cakes is gone.
NOTE: Everyone is one word when it means
everybody. Every one is two words when the meaning
is each one.
Rule 9
With words that indicate portionspercent, fraction,
part, majority, some, all, none, remainder, and so forth
look at the noun in your of phrase (object of the
preposition) to determine whether to use a singular or
plural verb. If the object of the preposition is singular,
use a singular verb. If the object of the preposition is
plural, use a plural verb.
Examples:
Fifty percent of the pie has disappeared.
Pie is the object of the preposition of.
Fifty percent of the pies have disappeared.
Pies is the object of the preposition.
One-third of the city is unemployed.
One-third of the people are unemployed.
NOTE: Hyphenate all spelled-out fractions.
All of the pie is gone.
All of the pies are gone.
Some of the pie is missing.
Some of the pies are missing.
None of the garbage was picked up.
None of the sentences were punctuated correctly.
Of all her books, none have sold as well as the first
one.




Instructional Plan in English 7

Rule 10
The expression the number is followed by a singular
verb while the expression a number is followed by a
plural verb.
Examples:
The number of people we need to hire is thirteen.
A number of people have written in about this subject.
Rule 11
When either and neither are subjects, they always take
singular verbs.
Examples:
Neither of them is available to speak right now.
Either of us is capable of doing the job.
Rule 12
The words here and there have generally been labeled
as adverbs even though they indicate place. In
sentences beginning with here or there, the subject
follows the verb.
Examples:
There are four hurdles to jump.
There is a high hurdle to jump.
Rule 13
Use a singular verb with sums of money or periods of
time.
Examples:
Ten dollars is a high price to pay.
Five years is the maximum sentence for that offense.
Rule 14
Sometimes the pronoun who, that, or which is the
subject of a verb in the middle of the sentence. The
pronouns who, that, and which become singular or
plural according to the noun directly in front of them.
So, if that noun is singular, use a singular verb. If it is
plural, use a plural verb.
Instructional Plan in English 7

Examples:
Salma is the scientist who writes/write the reports.
The word in front of who is scientist, which is singular.
Therefore, use the singular verb writes.
He is one of the men who does/do the work.
The word in front of who is men, which is plural.
Therefore, use the plural verb do.
Rule 15
Collective nouns such as team and staff may be either
singular or plural depending on their use in the
sentence.
Examples:
The staff is in a meeting.
Staff is acting as a unit here.
The staff are in disagreement about the findings.
The staff are acting as separate individuals in this
example.
The sentence would read even better as:
The staff members are in disagreement about the
findings.
Guide Practice:
Select the correct verb form to agree with the subject.
1. There _________ nine people on the team.

2. I ____ fifteen years old.
