Subject-Verb Agreement

Crowd Content Grammar School

In this Grammar School series, we’re going to give you a quick overview of some of the lessons you will find at Crowd Content University. Today, we’re discussing subject-verb agreement.

As a writer, nothing is more important than grammar. However, sometimes even the best writer struggles with some of the grammar rules.

Subject-Verb agreement is one of those grammar concepts that seem simple, but can actually be quite challenging. Whether you are a seasoned grammar expert or a newbie to the writing game, a quick refresher on subject-verb agreement can really help you out.

Here’s a sneak peak at the lesson.

The Basics

In this lesson, you’ll learn the basics of subject-verb agreement, which should be mastered before you move on to the more complicated concepts. Identifying the primary subject and the verb and making sure they match one another is the key takeaway from this part of the lesson.

Adding In Conjunctions

Grammar concepts are easy enough to master with basic and simple sentences. However, it is when you begin to add more diversity and complexity to those sentences that you run into challenges.

What you can expect to learn next in this lesson is how to begin adding in conjunctions while ensuring your subject and verb still agree. The words “and,” “or,” and “nor” can all make it challenging to make your verbs and subjects agree with one another.

Indefinite Pronouns and Other Challenges

Finally, the lesson moves on to concepts that are particularly challenging. Even the best writers in the business may have trouble with the use of words like “none” and “nobody” when they are the subject of a sentence.

Reviewing the concept of subject-verb agreement can ensure that you are always on-point with your writing. When you are finished this lesson, there will be no sentence that you cannot structure properly.
