Message 2: pl. vs. sg. 'none'

Subject: pl. vs. sg. 'none'

Dear Listers,

Can someone remind me about (or provide new research on) the usage patterns of
"none" with respect to subject-verb agreement?

I'm specifically interested in functional analyses which attempt to explain
descrepancies such as "None (of them) has" vs. "None (of them) have."

Are there corpora studies to support any findings?

Thanks so much for your help,

-Bill Byrne
