Dawn from Saginaw, MI asks...
It it proper to say "none of them is coming" or "none of them are coming"?
Anne answers...
"None of them is coming" is correct. None really means "not one," so if you substitute those two words and think to yourself "Not one of them is coming," it might help in the future.
