not one of us is..

not one of us are

it's is

ruthmollymummy · 29/04/2008 09:23

she is not
we are not

i thought "is" was for singular?

stuffitllama · 29/04/2008 09:24

it is singular
none means no one or not one

none of us is perfect
none of us are perfect

trust me

not one of us is

It does look odd, but I'm sure that's the grammatically correct one

ruthmollymummy · 29/04/2008 09:25

and you're right stuffit! if you break it down like that not one of us is - because then it becomes singular - not one of us is
we are not

none of us still refers to a group....

None of us is
