5.  Subject-verb agreement   por Márcio Farias às 19/OUT/2008, 10:28 PM
<<Spring´s gorgeous weather rob us of excuses for not exercising.

As lindas/maravilhosas condições do tempo na primavera, nos tira qualquer desculpa para se exercitar.>>

 


PP, by default or not the single subject weather in "Spring's gorgeous weather" takes a verb singular (robs), doesn't it?

 


As for the Portuguese, a verb plural might as well go with "... condições..." (tiram) as far as subject-verb agreements in romance languages go. Or stay.
