Exceptions (i) The verb `be` and its forms are an exception to this rule: it is a friend. I`m your friend. They`re friends. We will use the standard to highlight themes once and verbs twice. The first example expresses a wish, not a fact; Therefore, what we usually consider plural is used with the singular. (Technically, this is the singular theme of the object clause in the subjunctive mind: it was Friday.) Usually, it would look awful. However, in the second example, where a question is formulated, the spirit of subjunctive is true. Note: the subjunctive mind is losing ground in spoken English, but should nevertheless be used in speeches and formal writings. Present Tense A verb must correspond in number and in person with its subject. (a) If the subject is third, no one is singular, most English verbs end in -s or -it, but there are no -s or -it in plural thirds.
He goes to school. You go to school. Sita goes to school. Sita and Rama go to school. They`re eating a mango. Ram eats a mango. Rule 5b: Parentheses are not part of the subject. 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 `will is a full verb that means 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.
The verbs that end with “y” and have a consonant before that `y` are added to the `y` in T and `-`if the subject is a singular third person. Ram`s counting on me. He`s doing his best. He`s flying a kite. Use the current progressive tension to talk about the things you`ve planned or things that are going to happen in the future. To form the current progressive tension, they use the, is and are as helping verbs or auxiliary verbs.
