Uddrag
1. I just saw the money on the table, but now they have gone.
Rettelse: I just saw the money on the table, but now it is gone.

Forklaring: Ordet “money” er et utælleligt substantantiv, som altid står i singularis, hvilket også vil sige at verballeddet altid skal være bøjet i 3. person singularis.

Derfor skal både “they” og “have” erstattes med “it” og “is”, da det dermed er bøjet i 3. person singularis efter subjektet “money”.

2. Couldn’t you give the police any new informations?
Rettelse: Couldn’t you give the police any new information?

Forklaring: Ordet “information” er utælleligt substantiv, som altid står i singularis. Det vil sige, at ordet derfor ikke skal have en pluralisendelse - s. Man kan dog også bruge mængdeudtryk, som for eksempel “a piece of”.
