I have two questions: one is regarding usage of s (singular,plural) and other one is regarding sentence structure (syntax). Let me take the former question first. Would it be grammatically correct to use S with the word come(s) in my below given sentence or is it already grammatically correct ? I'm addressing a singular person. My second question is my below given sentence is correctly phrase structured ?
Thanks in advance
This is mine sentence: Why everytime u come up with nonsensical replies like :______________
Thanks for the reply and the suggestion. I've one more question it's related to your qoute you said, "it is the 3rd person that takes an s at the end" sorry if I'm wrong but I feel S is used according to singular/plurals. For example: I've heard lot of people sayings : It seems to me. Here word seem isn't a third person but a singular person..or perhaps it's denoting something else. Could you elaborate more on this ?
If the subject of a verb is singular add an 's'.
she speaks English fluently.
Razer asks many questions.
If the subject of a verb is plural use an infinitive verb. without s.
The students of English ask many questions.
If you want to pluralize a noun, only countable nouns, add an 's'
car-cars / door-doors / window-widows
Uncountable nouns don't take an 's'
e.g: water, tea, sugar, milk and...etc.
It seems to me.
Razer, the ending of the verb depends on the subject the verb goes with. In this case it is the subject, 3rd person singular. The verb only takes the s with third persona singular subjects.
This is only true for nouns, not for verbs.I feel S is used according to singular/plurals
Thanks a lot I got it. Thanks everybody.
