Sometimes modifiers will find themselves between a subject and its verb, but these modifiers should not confuse the match between the subject and its verb.

NOTE: But sometimes ics nouns can have a plural meaning: we can talk about certain parts of this set. In this case, we apply the same rule as that applicable to group names if we examine the individual members within the group (see section 3.3): We use plural verblage. While you`re probably already familiar with the basic subject-verb agreement, this chapter begins with a brief overview of the basic rules of the agreement. .
