The subject is the person or thing that performs an action, while verbs are words that describe what a person or thing does.

Subject and verb are essential parts of sentences and have a significant impact on the flow of language. They help to make sense of a sentence and convey meaning, beginning with subject and ending with verb.

Subject-verb agreement means that the subject of your sentence must match the verb with which it agrees. Thus, if you are talking about the person who does something, using "does" as a verb would be appropriate for this sentence: "Sara does what she's told." However, if you are talking about someone who does something, using "does" as a verb would not be appropriate for this sentence: "Sara does what she tells." Instead, you should use "tells" as a verb because Sara is being instructed to do something.

The Basics. Subjects and verbs must AGREE with one another in NUMBER. Thus, if a subject is singular, its verb must also be singular; if a subject is plural, its verb must also be plural. The dog loves people.

Verb agreement is a grammar rule in the English language. It means that an action verb will take an object form, while an linking verb will take its subject form. A verb agreement error happens when a writer chooses to use the wrong form of it. These errors create confusion in sentences and make them difficult to understand. One way to improve this is by using this idea and subject agreement as mentioned in the section topic.
