Could someone explain to me why the word "like" is plural and not singular because I actually thought "like" was singular.
And isn't "the girls" singular?
"the girls like the movie"

Ahh -- our complicated English language.
Look at these plural verbs:
They sleep at night.
Those girls go to our school.
My children live in different states.
"The girls" is plural. Plural means more than one.
The girls like vampire movies.
The girl likes vampire movies.

oh okay, thank you
Also, what about "the family" is it plural or singular?

Family is singular. My family is one unit.

You're welcome, again. :-)
