Concordance usually involves the concordance of the value of a grammatical category between different elements of a sentence (or sometimes between sentences, as in some cases where a pronoun is needed to match its predecessor or speaker). Some categories that often trigger grammatical concordance are listed below. The word “agreement”, when it refers to a grammatical rule, means that the words used by an author must correspond in number and gender (if any). For more details on the two main types of chords, see the subject-verb chord and the pronoun agreement. Also note the concordance that is shown to be even in the subjunctive atmosphere. Thus, the current simple form of the verb RISE with the subject plural price must be a plural increase, but with the singular, the price must be singular increases. In this case, the form of the subject also varies according to which of the two meanings is conveyed (what grammars call “concord”), but in other cases, only one of the two words changes form. Adjectives correspond to gender and number with nouns that modify them in French. As with verbs, chords are sometimes displayed only in spelling, because forms written with different formulas are sometimes pronounced in the same way (z.B.
pretty, pretty); although, in many cases, the final consonant is pronounced in feminine forms, but mute in masculine forms (for example. B Small vs. Small). Most plural forms end on -s, but this consonant is pronounced only in connecting contexts, and these are determinants that help to understand whether the singular or plural is targeted. In some cases, verb participations correspond to the subject or object. Note that you will only need a plural if it means “members of a given group” (see 63rd restrictions on the use of “one”) – there is no plural for the meaning “people in general” (see 211. General words for people). On the other hand, the possessive can only be used with the latter meaning – see sentence (c) above. Also note that gender differences between him and him and him are today often (in the interest of equality) avoided by the use of them in all cases.

Subtleties of the words “-self”. The fact that possessivadjektive corresponds to a different name than the one according to them is a very likely cause of error for some English learners. Another is the possessive necessary to correspond to an earlier use of a meaning “man in general”. Good form is always his own, not his, yours or yours, z.B.: In this blog, concordance is the main theme of another post (12. Singular and Plural Verb Choices) and is also discussed in 28. Pronoun error (#5) and 138/214. Test your mastery of grammar 1 & 2. However, these are not complete surveys of correspondence in English..
