    subject/ singular or plural

    Hello
    I found this sentence:
    "Spoken language has a number of characteristics that affects comprehension or even blocks it"
    Is this right?? I think it should be: affect and block!! right!
    Thanks in advance.

    You're absolutely right since affect and block refers back to a number of characteristics, and not to spoken language.
