I've run across another sentence I'm not sure on with collective nouns. The sentence is.. After winning, the team (receive, receives) individual trophies for different skills. Thanks..

  • language arts -

    Same as before. Since the team are getting trophies, team must be considered plural. Team receives . . .

  • language arts -

    If it is plural wouldn't it be receive? Like they receive trophies?

  • language arts -- oops! -

    Ooops! I goofed! Thanks for catching my mistake. Yes -- they receive . . .
