Verb Agreement Grade 8
A link links a name or adjective in the predicate to the subject. The forms of the verb `be` are the most common links. The binding verbs can be used in all three voltage times. If two or more singular subjects are linked by `and` with each other, the plural verb is used. Example: Types of verbs Word An action word indicates what the subject is doing. (build, laugh, walk, express) or exist. (is, are, were, were) Examples: When individual subjects have “everyone” or “all” in front of them, the verb is usually singular. For example, insert the correct shape of the current shape into the spaces. The verbs are in parentheses. 1. A new home……. Lots of money.
(costs) 2. The new car…….. Very quickly. (walking) 3. Most things … more than before. (costs) 4. This plane……… Faster than sound. (Mouches) 5. The lawn ……… It`s good in the summer.
(see) 6. These children……… very healthy. (see) 7. One of the players……… From my village. (to come) 8. These people…….. us in their own cars. (to come) Answers: 1. Cost 2. works 3.
Cost 4. Fly 5. looks 6. 7. 7. comes 8. come If a plural noun between a singular subject and its verb comes, the verb used is singular in form. Example: Question 3. Highlight the verbs in the sentences below and indicate whether they are in the active or passive voice.
(i) Sita loves Savitri. (ii) The wall is built by the mason. (iii) Some boys helped the injured man. (iv) The man killed the snake. v) The food prepared by Asha was eaten by Ram. Answer: (i) Sita loves Savitri. – (Active) (ii) The wall is built by the mason. – (Passive) (iii) Some boys helped the injured. – (Active) (iv) Man killed the snake. – (Active) (v) The food prepared by Asha was eaten by Ram.
Prepared — (active) eaten – (Passive) Some substantives that are plural in form, but which are singularly in the sense, take a singular verb. For example, if two nouns relate to the same person or the same thing, the verb must be singular. Example: The title of a book, play, history, musical composition and the name of a country, although plural in the form of a singular verb. Example: a transitive verb requires a direct object to complete its meaning. The meaning of a sentence with a transitive verb is not complete without a direct object. Mommy, can I go to the park? I jumped over the puddle. You`re swimming fast in the race. What do the words that are put forward all have in common? They`re verbs! A verb is a main part of the language commonly used to describe or display an action. Sentences are not complete without a verb. Here are some examples: running, stopping, listening, shouting, exploring and believing.
The verbs have three main parts. They are present, from the past and past participants. For regular verbs, the past is formed by adding to the current form; and past participation is done by using past tense verb with a helping verb like having, having or having. Example: (ii) Can, must, must and must and auxiliaries have and should not have “s” in singular or plural. What the Lord will ask, the servant will do. The servants will do what they ask. If “wants” is a complete verb meaning desire, it follows the rule for most other verbs and accepts `-s` if the subject is a singular third person. No matter what God wants, man cannot change. Words that end with `y` and have a consonant before that `y` the `y` in T and `-it is added if the subject is a singular third person.
