- For Teachers
I met the sentence on our university's website. "A student posted a 'Babysitter Available' ad, and received an offer to become employed by an idividual on the condition the student open a Bank of America bank account and provide the account information." Noticed "open" and "provide" have no -s or -ed here, I am confused. Are they supposed to go with " the student"? Thank you.
There is a semantic difference - in many English dialects still - between:
The appeals court agreed that the man should be hanged (which most people believed already).
The appeals court agreed that the man be hanged (which is worse news for the man than the above).
