Question and answer
Q: five sentences using indefinite pronouns.
A: ?"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time." (Abraham Lincoln) ?"No one wants to hear about my sciatica." (Bart Simpson, [ The Simpsons) ?"I will not dance on anyone's grave." (Bart Simpson, The Simpsons) ?"It's clear that one is singular and takes a singular verb. One is, never one
are. However, there's a small group of indefinite pronouns that have one in them, or imply the word one, that give us all verb trouble. either, either one each, each one any, anyone, anybody everyone, everybody none, no one, nobody neither, neither one In speaking, most of us always correctly use the singular verb with anyone and anybody: Anyone around my base is it. If anybody wants this, he can have it. But with the rest of the list, we often shift to the plural if there's an intervening modifying phrase: Everyone is late for breakfast today. Everyone of us are late for breakfast today. Neither horse has been shod yet. Neither of the horses have been shod yet. We suggest that you say whatever you like, whatever sounds most comfortable. When it comes to writing, if you think somebody's going to be evaluating your grammar, stick to the singular verb after each of these words." (Judi Kesselman-Turkel and Franklynn Peterson, The Grammar Crammer, Univ. of Wisconsin Press, 2003) ?"Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination." (Oscar Wilde) ?"A little government and a little luck are necessary in life, but only a fool trusts either of them." (P. J. ]
