Verb Agreement Voice

The general rule of subject-verb concordance in the number is as follows: the subject in the singular requires the verb in the singular. The subject in the plural requires the verb in the plural. • Words related to a subject by being related to, in addition to, with, as well as (as), with, in addition, not, etc., are in parentheses and the verb corresponds to the original subject. [5] In Hungarian, verbs are polypersonal, which means that they correspond to more than one of the arguments of the verb: not only with its subject, but also with its (precise) object. There is a distinction between the case where there is a particular object and the case where the object is indeterminate or where there is no object at all. (Adverbians have no influence on the form of the verb.) Examples: Szeretek (I like someone or something unspecified), more (I love him, she, she or she, in particular), szeretlek (I love you); szeret (he loves me, us, you, someone or something indeterminate), szereti (he loves him, him or her specifically). Of course, names or pronouns can specify the exact object. In short, there is a correspondence between a verb and the person and the number of its subject and the specificity of its object (which often relates more or less precisely to the person). Compared to English, Latin is an example of a very volatile language. The consequences for the agreement are: • A question with whom or what a singular verb takes. 7. Nouns such as civics, mathematics, dollars, measles and short stories require singular verbs.

The predicate corresponds in number to the subject and if it is copulative (i.e. composed of a subject/adjective and a connecting verb), both parts correspond to the subject. For example: A könyvek voltak “The books were interesting” (“a”: “könyv”: book, “érdekes”: interesting, “voltak”: were): the plural is marked both on the subject and on the adjective and copulative part of the predicate. 5. Don`t be misled by a sentence that is between the subject and the verb. The verb is in agreement with the subject, not with a noun or pronoun in the phrasing. Some nouns that end on s/they are plural in form, but singular in meaning, for example news, mathematics, physics, measles. These nouns require a singular verb. Here are some special cases for the subject-verb agreement in English: for verbs, the convergence of the sexes is less widespread, although it can still occur. For example, in the past French compound, in certain circumstances, the past part corresponds to the subject or an object (see past compound for details). In Russian and most other Slavic languages, the form of the past in sex corresponds to the subject. Note: The word dollar is a special case.

When we talk about a sum of money, we need a singular, but if we refer to the dollars themselves, a plural abrasing is necessary. In substantive sentences, adjectives do not correspond to the noun, although pronouns do. A szép könyveitekkel “with your beautiful books” (“szép”: beautiful): The suffixes of the plural, possessive “you” and casus marking “with” are marked only on the noun. In some cases, a singular verb is also found with “the majority of”, for example with “population”. 11. Expressions as with, with, including, accompanied by, in addition to or do not change the subject number. If the subject is singular, the verb is also. The verb BE has more forms for correspondence with the subject in person and number: I am; he/she; us/them; is my brother. Are my brothers; I/he/she; we/they were; was my brother; My brothers were.

The titles of books, movies, shows, etc., are treated as singular and used with a singular verb. Concordance usually involves the concordance of the value of a grammatical category between different elements of a sentence (or sometimes between sentences, as in some cases where a pronoun is needed to match its predecessor or speaker). Some categories that often trigger grammatical concordance are listed below. On the other hand, a verb such as to leave (words are in vocif characters /paʁ/pronounced): an example of this is the verb to work which goes as follows (words are pronounced in vocive writing /tʁa.vaj/): 30 SUBJECT VERB AGREEMENTExample 1. . . .
