Sometimes the subject is separated from the verb by such words, as with, as well as, except, no, etc. These words and phrases are not part of the subject. Ignore them and use a singular verb if the subject is singular. Sometimes modifiers come between a subject and its verb, but these modifiers should not confuse the match between the subject and his verb. The agreement generally includes the matching of the value of a grammatical category between different elements of a sentence (or sometimes between sentences, as in some cases where a pronoun agrees with its predecessor or its reference opinion). Some categories that often trigger grammatical chords are listed below. In a sentence a possessive pronoun must correspond personally, the number and the sex with the Nostun or the pronoun to which it refers. Standard chords are shown in the following examples.

“The verb corresponds in large numbers to the next subject. Money sum, periods, distance, weights expressed by phrases such as “ten dollars; Five thousand” in the subject are treated as singular (as a unit) and take a singular verb. Subjects and verbs must be among them in numbers (singular or plural) together AGREE. So if a subject is singular, its verb must also be singular; If a subject is plural, its verb must also be plural. [This sounds very simple, but could be difficult for native speakers of languages in which the subject-verb chord means exactly that the verb and subject carry the same morphs!] Sentences (7) and (8) may appear to be false because there are two parents and two boys, but the subject is still considered unique for the purposes of the agreement. This manual gives you several guidelines to help your subjects and verbs to accept. You will find additional help for the agreement between themes in the Pluriurale section.
