But if the members of the group act as individuals – each person assumes separate responsibilities or actions – then the collective noun is plural and requires plural pronouns for the agreement. The Council agrees with government policy. English unfortunately contains some specific situations of agreement. These require your more careful attention. The pronoun must correspond to its predecessor. To use this correspondence well, you must know these singular and plural forms: but the confident tone did not provide an answer to Mary`s approval. We all agree that Mr. Ross should resign. Not only the homemade sweet potato pie, but also the hand-picked flowers will win Briana`s heart with their reflection.

(NOTE that you have two precursors, the homemade sweet potato cake and the hand-picked flowers. Use the two precursors approach to determine whether you need a singular or plural pronoun.) And on the way out, he lived up to the letter of their consent. If an idea resonates in a group or country, people are wrong: can you believe it? Someone left his dog in a warm car with windows rolled up! That`s right: can you believe it? Someone left his dog in a warm car with windows rolled up! The mention of Mege put them all in agreement, because they hated him unanimously. Since this group of indeterminate pronouns is singular, your choice of a singular pronoun might lead some people to think that you are sexist. For example, if you say that a solution is to involve both sexes with constructions like him or her, she or him, his or their or herself. If these constructs are grammatically correct, they are also clumsy and can interpret the flow of words in a sentence or paragraph. Another solution is to omit the pronoun.

The general rule of over-conformity of pronouns is simple: a single precursor requires a singular pronoun; a plural history needs a plural pronoun. I do not recall that our agreement said anything about that. In mathematics, 1 + 1 = 2. This rule also applies to the pronoun agreement. If you have a noun 1singular + 1 singular, then they are together = 2 things or a plural prehistory. informally agreeing or able to cooperate easily in accordance with what has been said or approved These results are in line with our previous conclusions.

Many people form a company, a school or an organization. However, for the purposes of pronoun agreement, consider these three groups as singular and use them to maintain compliance. When people speak, logic wins, so you`ll hear plural pronouns with those words. But when you write, the words are like anyone, someone and nothing are singularly and require a singular pronoun for the chord. all together at the same time, in a way that shows total convergence Again, they looked at each other as if in accordance with a meaning on their faces.
