Agreement (Agr)


Subject and verb do not match, or pronoun and antecedent. The easiest way to make this error is simply to forget an "s":

"The quick brown fox jump over the lazy dog."

More complicated agreement problems arise with multiple subjects, intervening phrases and pronouns. See the section on agreement in the grammar section for further information.
