Important grammar question


Recommended Posts

I know i am posting this on the right board!

If you want to tease your 14 year old, by using a combo name ala Brangelina or Kimye, does it take a singular or plural verb?

Is it Brangelina need a ride to summer camp, or Brangelina needS a ride?

I would hate to get it wrong.

I would go with Brangelina need. Since there are two of them, plural makes sense. Plus, any gender neutral singular could use the plural form of the verb as well, such as "they need." So works either way.

Sounds like you were mostly joking, but it's still an interesting question 🙂
