Either his parents or Pheroze is going to come today.
The author of the book suggests as :
Either Pheroze or his parents are going to come today. = OK
We know with ( either \ or and neither\ nor ) the last verb agrees with the closer noun to ( or \ nor) So, it is correct on its original pattern. Pheroze = singular and using ( is ) = correct My question " Why to move the singular noun ( Pheroze) to be directly after either " Is this a technique or a new technique?
