Grammatical Agreement Def

Although its name does not immediately reveal it, this paper is a case study on the interaction of verbal concordance in tagalog with the syntax of long-range extraction, which offers a fascinating perspective on the often expressed intuition that certain types of concordance are necessary precursors of certain types of syntactic movement. In Hungarian, verbs have a polypersonal concordance, which means that they correspond to more than one of the arguments of the verb: not only its subject, but also its object (accusative). There is a difference between the case where a particular object is present and the case where the object is indeterminate or if there is no object at all. (Adverbs have no influence on the form of the verb.) Examples: Szeretek (I love someone or something indeterminate), szeretem (I love him, she, or her, or her, specifically), szeretlek (I love you); szeret (he loves me, me, you, someone or something indeterminate), szereti (he loves him, her or her especially). Of course, names or pronouns can specify the exact object. In short, there is agreement between a verb and the person and the number of its subject and the specificity of its object (which often refers more or less precisely to the person). Verb subject agreement refers to the fact that the subject and the verb must consent in one sentence in the number. In other words, both must be singular or both plural. You cannot have a single subject with a plural verb or vice versa.

The difficult part is to know the singulars and plural forms of subjects and verbs. In short, themes and verbs should always have the appropriate correspondence, whether singular or plural. At the beginning of modern times, there was an agreement for the second person, which singularus all the verbs in the current form, as well as in the past some usual verbs. It was usually in the shape-east, but -st and t also occurred. Note that this does not affect endings for other people and numbers. “The agreement also takes place in English between demonstrative and substants. A demonstrator must accept the number with his name. So with a plural noun like books, you have to use a plural this or that, give these books or books. With a singular name, like the book, use only one this or that, give this book or this book.

This book or book would not be grammatical, because the demonstrative does not correspond to the name. James R. Hurford, Grammar: A Student`s Guide. Cambridge University Press, 1994 Such a concordance is also found with predictors: man is great (“man is great”) vs.
