Description
[FROM THE TEXT]
To say that a verb agrees in form with its subject is to say that a verb has more than one form and that each form matches up with a particular kind of subject. To write Standard English correctly, you need to know which form goes with each type of subject, where to find the subject in a clause, and whether the subject is singular or plural.

[ABOUT THE BOOK]
Through four successful editions, Writing: A College Handbook’s positive approach has not only empowered students to write effectively, it has challenged students to consider why good writing matters. The Fifth Edition builds on this emphasis, exemplifying in clear, engaging prose the skills that students need to communicate in a wide variety of rhetorical contexts. A reliable and easy-to-use reference tool and an up-to-date rhetoric and research guide, Writing: A College Handbook invites students to discover the power of effective writing.
