Noun-Verb Agreement

Nouns and verbs must agree in number. A singular noun must be used with a singular verb.

  • My sister is an auditor. (Single noun sister agrees with single verb is.)
  • The car is parked at the used car lot. (Single noun car agrees with single verb is parked.)

Likewise, a plural noun must be used with a plural verb for there to be agreement.

  • My sisters are accountants. (Plural noun sisters agrees with plural verb are.)
  • The cars are parked at the used car lot. (Plural noun cars agrees with plural verb are parked.)
