In other words, with, well, and beyond, do not behave in the same way as the conjunction and when it comes to the verb-subject chord (although they have about the same meaning or function). Singular subjects require singular verbs, while plural subjects need plural verbs. The verbs “be” change the most depending on the number and person of the subject. Other verbs do not change much on the basis of subjects other than the verbs of the simple form of the present. If the subjects are a singular number of a third person, the verbs are used with s/s when they are in a simple present form. The verbs with s/es in the sentence are called singular verbs. In these constructs (called explective constructs), the subject follows the verb, but still determines the number of verbs. We will use the standard to highlight themes once and verbs twice.

(Is the thing referred to referred to or not referred to?) Be careful when selecting a verb to accompany these pronouns. If the `and` conjunction is replaced by/together with/accompanied by/and, the verb has no effect on the later part of these expressions. The words before these expressions are the themes. When preposition phrases separate subjects from verbs, they have no influence on verbs. Expressions of rupture like half, part of, a percentage of, the majority of are sometimes singular and sometimes plural, depending on the meaning. (The same is true, of course, when all, all, more, most and some act as subjects.) The totals and products of mathematical processes are expressed in singular and require singular verbs.
