Subject Verb Agreement Learning Objectives

In the English language, verbs usually come by subject. But if this order is reversed, the author must reconcile the verb with the subject, not with a noun in front of him.

To verify the match, you just have to find the verb and ask who or what does the action of that verb. For example: Detecting and correcting inappropriate movements in the tension of the verb.
