    Slayer Rule или Rules. Кто прав-то?

    Вот нашел диалог. Так и не понял как правильно.

    crusader
    Slayer rules!

    clashman
    slayer rule! not rules!

    masterofpuppets
    He rules, that makes Slayer Rules, idiot!

    SLAYER RULES!!!\m/

    clashman
    no coz slayer is plural coz they are 4 people! retard!

    masterofpuppets
    Slayer is one person.
    Slayer Rules...
    The members of Slayer are 4 persons.
    The members of Slayer rule...
    SLAYER RULES!!!

    clashman
    No! you're just stupid! and even if you did count slayer as one person(which is ridiculous) it would still be rule not rules! you wouldnt say "i rules"

    masterofpuppets
    But your not talking about yourself, your talking about another person...

    guitarboy
    but you would say he rules

    paramonflows
    slayer is a band...
    you use the plural form of rule because the band has 4 people in it.

    clashman
    yeh. are is plural and is is singlural! idiot

    paramonflows
    dude you're stupid.
    is english even your first language?

    clashman
    are u retarded? you're actually trying to tell me that is is plural and that are is singular? i actually cant believe this!

    paramonflows
    no
    im just trying to say
    the sentence "slayer rules" is the proper way of saying... well slayer rules not "slayer rule"

    clashman
    no no no. thats the way most americans say it because they cant speak proper english. its slayer rule! not rules!

    paramonflows
    wtf im not even american
    besides, have you ever heard "he rule" or "that rule"
    NO
    because its not how its supposed to be said.
    shesh.

    clashman
    but slayer are a band. 4 ppl not 1!
    saying "slayer rules" is like saying "they rules" it wud be they rule!

    paramonflows
    but the word slayer is a singular word that REPRESENTS 4 people, so thats why you say rules instead of rule

    thedrummer
    your an idoit. thats all im gonna say.

    paramonflows
    erm
    can you explain to me why im an "idoit"

    gamesource
    You're talking about 1 band. It's singular, therefore, "rules" is correct.

    clashman
    no sorry! 4 ppl!

    gamesource
    Dude, that's like saying "America Rule The World" just because the country has more than 1 person living in it. We're talking about 1 single band, with a singular name, Slayer, Not SlayerS, Slayer. It's "rules" man, face it.

    clashman
    or maybe you just havta face facts that americans cannot speak the english language properly

    clashman
    its just the name of the band they still are for ppl. wat about band with "the" in their name? you wouldn't say the ramones rules or the ramones is great! its the exact same. its not proper english! it all comes from america. the world is too americanised these days!

    paramonflows
    for the ramones, you WOULD say the ramones rule, only because their band name (name that represents them) is plural.

    clashman
    its still the same thing man they are for ppl. weather or not the word slayer is singurlar on not simmes the point that we're still talking about four ppl. its not correct english to talk about a band as singular!sure the word "band" is plural!

    paramonflows
    i guess you might be right
    its just.. saying slayer rules instead of slayer rule just feels/sounds better to say. thats all

    clashman
    it is pretty much a pointless arguement. and ur right in 1 thing. paramon are shit!

    paramonflows
    lol yeh

    Ага, спасибо. Я нашел это в книжке. Но вроде американцы утверждают, что это неправильно.

    It's one of the differences between BrEng and AmEng. In AmEng singular collective nouns always take singular agreement, while in BrEng they can take either singular or plural depending on context, as explained on that BBC page.

    Surely you mean 'Slayer are not that great'.

    В целом понятно. На том форуме либо необразованные, либо школьники, либо необразованные школьники.

    Sure. But, just the same, you can't disagree.
