    either of you feels /feel unconfortable

    Dear all,

    Your personal space runs from eighteen inches to four feet between you and other people. It is the distance at which you conduct most coversations with acquaintances. You want people to be close enough so that you hear and see each other easily, but not so close that either of you feels uncomfortable.

    In the passage above, if the "feels" in bold is "feel", is that wrong? Does "either of you" agree with "feels"?

    Thank you!

    OP

    Re: either of you feels /feel unconfortable

    Yes - 'either (one) of you' is singular, so 'feels' is correct.
