IMPORTANT RULES

Rule 1- When two singular subjects are connected by or, use a singular verb. The same is true for either/or and neither/nor.

Example– John or Mary is coming tonight.

Either coffee or tea is fine.

Neither John nor Mary was late.

Rule 2-. Adjectives usually come before a noun (except when a verb separates the adjective from the noun).

Example– I have a big dog.

She married a handsome Italian man.

(Her husband is rich.)

Rule 3-  When using two or more adjectives together, the usual order is opinion-adjective + fact-adjective + noun. (There are some additional rules for the order of fact adjectives.)

Example– I saw a nice French table.

That was an interesting Shakespearian play.

Rule 4- Treat collective nouns (eg committee, company, board of directors) as singular OR plural. In BrE a collective noun is usually treated as plural, needing a plural verb and pronoun. In AmE a collective noun is often treated as singular, needing a singular verb and pronoun.

Example– The committee are having sandwiches for lunch. Then they will go to London. (typically BrE)

The BBC have changed their logo. (typically BrE)

My family likes going to the zoo. (typically AmE)

CNN has changed its logo. (typically AmE)

Rule 5- The words its and it’s are two different words with different meanings.
