I'm new here on usingenglish. I'd really like to know the grammatical reason why when you ask for the subject of a question (subject questions) as in "who loves Peter?" or "what happened here?", you have to use the verb in 3rd person singular.
Thanks so much!
Looking forward to your replies!
Re: Subject questions
Think of who as which person and what as which thing.
