I've made up two words for my personal needs in a story. They are "mostbody" and "fewbody" used in a dialect in direct speech (see explanation here. Introduce new English dialect). I would like to know if it's better to use plural or singular with these words?
- "I tells you that fewbody in our vil' agree/agrees with you."
I'm thinking of presenting "fewbody" as either a union or separate units. From what I know about "everybody", "somebody", or "anybody" - they all use only singular.
