In informal writings, none, and both sometimes take on a plural veneer, when these pronouns are followed by a prepositional sentence that begins with. This is especially true for constructions that ask questions: „Did you read the two clowns on the order?“ „Do you both take this seriously?“ Burchfield calls this „a conflict between fictitious agreement and real agreement.“ * Everyone seems satisfied with the deal, although some are less euphoric than others. Obama has been offering this deal to Republican leaders for ages, but there seemed to be a tacit agreement on everyone`s part to ignore it. Sometimes modifiers will find themselves between a subject and its verb, but these modifiers should not confuse the match between the subject and its verb. And finally, if you remove the room, we can understand why „everyone“ acts in a singular way, when in general, it involves a lot of people. So, gentlemen. Even though the following indeterminate pronouns seem to have plural interpretations, treat them in formal English as a singular: each, each, each, everyone, anything, neither, nor person, person, nobody, nothing. If a group or decision is unanimous, it means that everyone is in complete agreement. . . .
