1st tx;
1 ? Ive got plz:Do always we use plural verb 4
” news “?!
4instance:News r showed.
Am I right?!!

Profile photo of fatiima fatiima

    4give me,I was totally wrong,,
    I mean singular verbs after news not plural ones!!!!!!!
    Do we should singular verb 4 news always???????

      Fatima, let me explain it to you. I know that text is long, but read it, you will learn a lot from it.
      We have countable and uncountable nouns in the grammar. I am sure that you can differenciate count nouns such as apple, banana, ball, glass etc. from non-count nouns such as sugar, coffee, flour, milk and so on. You must keep in mind that nouns such as information, news, music, progress, luggage, business, furniture, advice, knowledge don’t have plural, therefore here is your answer that you have been looking for. You always use them in singular. E.g. What time is news on television? The same thing with information, you cannot say I gave you a information, but you can say I gave you some information.
      Ok, now when you know the difference, let me add something more in order to teach not only you, but everyone who reads this text.
      Nouns that have irregular plural are: Foot-feet, man-men, woman, women, child-children, mouse-mice, tooth-teeth, goose-geese and so forth.
      The following nouns have the same form in singular and plural: Sheep-sheep, means-means, species-species, deer-deer, fish-fish, series-series, and so on.
      Compound nouns form their plural by adding S to the principal word: Sister-in-law-sisters-in-law, writing-table, writing-tables etc.
      Sometimes we use a plural noun for one thing that has two parts. For example: Trousers, pyjamas, glasses, binoculars, scissors. E.g. Those are nice jeans, or that is a nice pair of jeans.
      I’m glad I had an opportunity to explain this to you, so read and learn, it’s not as difficult as it seems to be. Take care :)

      Merlin

        I see that I’ve omitted one letter. I’ve meant an information and not a information, however both are wrong :D

        Merlin

          Hi,
          How can I thank u Merlin!!
          Hope all is well with u.

mansour

John, tell me what is the correct way to ask someone for permission? Would you mind if I open the window, or would you mind if I opened the window? Respond ASAP.

Merlin

    “would you mind if I opened the window?” is the correct form. Also, you can say: “Would you mind opening the window?”.

    Carlos

      Carlos, can you explain it will? cause opened is past tense and would you mind if i opened the window is not done yet…

Wow! I’m a teacher and use Engvid every Monday. However, I won’t be using this one because of the Sarah Palin flash———I’m an avid Sarah Palin fan and I was put off by implication. Can we leave politics out of English Grammar, please!!!!!
