In the case of the example above, the subject at the end of the sentence is not “employer” but “everyone,” which is an indefinite pronoun. I hate it when people say, “I`m going to see my doctor. I hope they are nice. Use “him or her” or not be politically correct at all. Don`t use heavy and incorrect grammar, or we`ll put you in the chimpanzee category. It is obviously more a question of lightness of pronunciation than of grammar. The way grammar is shaped shows that this is manifested in writing. With John Truant and Phil, I feel bad. According to an adjective, we use adverbs with a few exceptions, some of which are the verb of being, getting, feeling, etc. You will be better practiced in verb-verb chords as long as you practice, practice! Let`s see another example of subject-verb agreement, this time with an indeterminate pronoun. “Employer” at the end of the sentence is plural, so, of course, the right verb should “speak,” right? Of course, you don`t say “a horse” or “a house” because it sounds wrong. That`s all he needs, what`s the best sound.
Of course, words need to be uttered correctly, which most Americans don`t seem to be able to do. The incorrect use of the word “only” really annoys me, for example, “I only eat pizza” does not mean the same thing as “I only eat pizza”. I see that some posters of previous comments have made the same mistake. I regularly copy legal treaties (in which there are many bulk quotations that are preceded by a language such as “Justice Scalia reasoned” or “According to case law” – and then the author will use a double point after “thoughtful” or “law”). Besides, I agree with you to teach good spelling, at least as much as can be taught. Knowledge of standardized spelling not only makes it easier to understand, but also to facilitate the quick recognition of words when reading. Also knowing how to do things on the “standard” way is useful for occasions when it is important. Again, students do not need to always spell properly. But I think standard spelling is the most appropriate choice for university work, regardless of the class they choose. Then, in the 19th century, the page turned again. There has been a breakthrough in making things gender neutral by using “it” as a universal pronoun.
It was started by a feminist teacher. Yes, she was a feminist who wanted to replace “she” with “him” as a universal pronoun. The reason I mention this is to say “she” was just like a single pronoun until the 19th. A very good friend of mine, an English teacher, used to tell me that there was no correct spelling, for the same reason – that the language was constantly evolving. I told him it was ridiculous. I was also told that as a science teacher, I should ignore spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, because we should focus only on science. But my argument is that part of it is necessary to be a scientist when students are not able to do so, and if they are not able to do so, they are not good scientists.
