noun with parenthetical s
When a noun is used in a sentence with a parenthetical s does it take a singluar or plural verb? Example: The ticket(s) is or are valid until Saturday. In this sentence, should the verb be "is" or "are"?
Re: noun with parenthetical s
We had to set that up as a rule in our style guide.
We chose to use plural. I believe this is entirely a style question and not a grammar question.
