In Cooperation With Subject Verb Agreement

Even though these words often appear at the beginning of a sentence (the traditional position for subjects) when they do, they do not necessarily act as subjects. In cases where, here and there, being with the verb (or one of its conjugals) works, they are part of the verbal sentence and not part of the subject: 8. Subjects such as scissors, tweezers, pants, and scissors require plural splinters. (These things are done in two parts.) In this sense, research in Comparative Indo-Germanic grammar has questioned the existence of a systematic concordance (in Corbett`s words) in the reconstructed Proto-Indo-Ottoman. After Meillet and Vendryes (1953: 598-600), the semantic value of the number was expressed independently of one another by the morphology of subjects and verbs. Gradually, a more restrictive and systematic covariance was born, imposing strict syntactic rules of subject-verb conformity. However, the prehistoric situation is evidenced by the many types of ad sensum concordances that have survived in ancient texts.7 In this perspective, the number of verbs, regardless of its syntactic trigger, can still retain a semantic force: spokespeople can use a plural form to emphasize the plurality of agents who join their efforts. while the singular may derive from it, that two coordinated concepts are in fact conceived as the two facets of a single term (see for example. B ex 6 above and discussion of paragraph 2.5) According to Steele (1978: 610), Corbett (2006) defines coherence as a systematic and asymmetrical covariance triggered by the formal or semantic characteristics of a controller and affecting the form of a lens. .
