I'm a new member and very happy to find and join this forum.
My first question is about the word "society": does it goes with singular or plural verb? For example:
- The whole society are joining the campaign and speak against these crimes.
- The whole society is joining the campaign and speaks against these crimes.
Which one is correct?
Society takes a singular verb - societies requires the plural version.
The whole society is joining the campaign to speak out against these crimes
"speak out, to express one's opinion openly and unreservedly: He was not afraid to speak out when it was something he believed in strongly."
Many thanks, Anglika and colloquium, for your help!
