The inflection of verbs in the singular and the plural goes wrong from surprisingly many.

In colloquial speech, the singular and the plural can be confused unnoticed, but in the written text it is worth paying attention to.

Päivi Laine, a Finnish language lecturer at the University of Turku, gives clear instructions.

- If the subject is in a unit, the verb is also in a unit.

If the subject is in the plural, the verb is also in the plural.

The wave gives an example:

Experts Virtanen and Pekkanen will discuss the matter.

WRONG

Experts Virtanen and Pekkanen will discuss the matter.

PROPERLY

An exception to the rule are plural words that refer to one thing, such as:

The party was really nice.

And unit words that refer to the set:

The group is too large.

Three boys running in the yard.

In the above examples, the verb bends according to the form of the subject, not according to the meaning of the word.

The words group that three are in the unit, even if they refer to more than one person.

Memory rule: See how many characters there are in a sentence, and then decide if the verb comes in the singular and the plural.

Laine says it’s important to master spelling norms.

For example, job search has the absolute advantage of mastering the rules of spelling.

When reading a job application, it is easy to pay attention to incorrect conjunctions and incorrect commas.

- You have to work on the spelling.

How much practice you get in writing, of course, depends a lot on what kind of work life you are involved in.

The requirements are also different in different areas.

You only learn to write and spell by practicing.

- People write a lot, but when you write a message on Whatsap, you don’t have to think about whether the comma goes in the right place or if you spell the conjunction correctly.
