Subject-Verb Agreement

Overview

The irregular forms of the verb be are thoroughly examined as a basis for understanding agreement between subject and verb. Students will also practice agreement with indefinite pronouns and with compound subjects. Looking at special situations such as intervening phrases, predicate nouns of a different number, and inverted order will help to solidify the understanding of agreement.
