14 Dic Not Only But Also Verb Agreement
Thank you, Stan. I accept your offer by answering Tony. (I also look forward to your response to Tony, Stan.) Tony, you`re asking for a revision with a combination of sentences, not a sentence correction? The only errors I see in your sentences are the lack of an initial ceiling for the good nomine, John, and the absence of a gap between the two sentences. For the rest, you seem to be asking for a combination of sentences that is a still valid writing theory of past years. Is this the right structure? “I felt that I had not only had a glimpse of the culture of these people, but also that I was learning to communicate across language barriers.” Thank you! And so “not only and but also” used in the combination of two themes. Z.B. Sonya makes a cake. Bernard makes a cake. Would you say, for example, “You`re having fun” or “having fun”? As “she” is plural, you would opt for the plural form of the verb “are.” Ready to dive into a world where subjects and verbs live in harmony? Today we will be looking at more thematic agreements/verbs. If you missed last week`s topic, please read “Verb singular, Pluriel Subject, Both . . .
and, it`s about the agreement. Big subject… But I have my doubts. Is it possible that “not only” appears independently in a sentence, without “but (also)” somewhere in the same sentence? “Our school is not only one of the best schools in our country, it has also become a world-class educational institution.” I wouldn`t do that… but also the construction with this line in general. If you have two distinct words by or . . . or, neither . .
. . not just . . . but also, the theme is singular and therefore use a singular verb. I was completely puzzled about how not only……. but also” in one sentence.
This site has helped me a lot to understand the use of them. Thank you very much. “Readers will discover that they are not only in touch with a section of American achievements, but that they are also invited to benefit from generous help from human nature.” (p. 212) 9. If subjects are related to both singular and the words “or,” “nor,” “neither/nor,” “either/or” or “not only/but also,” the verb is singular. In such cases, match the verb to the immediate name: (1) speaks, (2) speaks, (3) speaks.
