What is the grammatical name for the change in the verb between:
"One file contains â€¦" and "Two files contain â€¦"
I'm a programmer, and I'm writing a routine to help me output
grammatically correct messages. I'm counting files that contain a
certain word (or set of words), so I need a routine to differentiate
between "One â€¦ contains" and "Two â€¦ contain" (of course, the number
might be anything greater than one)
I'd like my routine to have a name that matches the grammatical name for
the change in the verb.
