Before we look at this discussion, it must be made very clear that if we say that the subject and the verb must agree, we believe – in the case of subjects of substantive sentences – that the main word of the word of the name sentence must correspond to the first verb of the verb. I teach at a high school in Sanepa, Lalitpur. I have found that many students at school make mistakes in the „subject verb agreement,“ especially those of the singular third person, even if they seem to know grammar. In private schools, students generally begin to learn English grammar when they are in class 2 throughout the school year. Although they have known and known the rules for several years, many students come up with phrases like „He has a book… „Sir have the book… etc., both in writing and through speech. By reading or writing, you may come across a sentence that contains an expression or clause that separates the subject from the verb. Often, preposition phrases or dependent clauses add more information to the sentence and appear between the subject and the verb. However, the subject and the verb have yet to agree. In sentences beginning with a construction, as here where there are, the subject follows the verb, but always determines the person and the number of the verb: due to L1 interference and the tendency of overgeneralization, Nepalese students find the use of the contemporary marker included. They must be constantly aware of the opposing rules of singular and plural issues in Nepal and English.

An agreement based on grammatical numbers can be made between verb and subject, as in the case of the grammatical person discussed above. In fact, the two categories are often mixed in conjugation patterns: there are specific forms of verbs for the first-person singular, the second plural, etc. A few examples: this puts Nepalese learners in a very confusing and complex situation. The Nepalese rule of adding to the verb an equivalent plural marker „chhan“ when the subject is plural, contradicts or disrupts English rules to eliminate plural markers of verbs when the subject is plural. It depends on whether a subject in the third person is singular or plural, because the verb form is often different from the singular of the third person. For most singular verbs of the third person, add to the root form of the verb one s: sit-s-sits, the third person form singular. (Be careful, while a s on a name usually refers to a plural, a s on a verb does not make the verb pluralistic.) Examples of how the verb changes in the third person follows the singular; Keep in mind that even irregular helping verbs (to do) add a s — was, was, was, is- in third person Singulier: Here is an example of a subject and verb separated by a dependent clause: Choose the right verb to approve sentences: Word-subject contract means that the verb will change its form depending on its subject.
