DanZero: [www.drpeppersnapplegroup.com image 394x380]Seriously, who hires root beer anyway?
Moriel: Holocaust Agnostic: The band is playingThe crowd is dancing.The label is scouting.The crew is planning a new pack for the trucks.The police are at the door.America, explain.Explain language? Ha, ha! Pull the other one, then.But seriously the only pattern I can see in those examples only makes me more confused. In each case the nouns are collectives. The band, crowd, label, crew, and police are all groups of people, rather than individual people. But in the first four cases it is understood that the nouns refers to the entirety of the collective. "The band" means "All of the band members". "The crew" means "all of the crew memebers", etc.In the last case "The police" refers to only a subset of the the entirety of the police. Is that what makes a difference? I don't know enough about grammar to answer this./Jake and Elwood might have been told that the police is at the door, however.
