When do I use the go or goes in the following sentences: A special thanks goes/go to .... A special thank you goes/go to ..... I know I can exclude the goes/ go part and say special thanka to.. But is there a difference for the use of goes or go? Or ...
 
AnonymousBut is there a difference for the use...
They are both the same there. An argument can be made for the correctness of both. ...
Anonymous Ok, thanks. And that would be the same case if I started the sentence without 'A'? as in:
Special thanks goes/go to ....
so they are the same here and an argument can be made for the correctness of both. Right?

maelstromhaving the latest item placed at the top
That's called 'FIFO' (first in, first out)
maelstromor vice versa)

With due respect, that sounds wrong. I did a quick reference search, "first loves" has 434,000 hits. On the other hand,
"first love" has 26,400,000 hits. I know Google is a snapshot of how English speaking people use the language. But it still ...
 
grammarfreakWith due respect, that sounds wrong....
The relative rarity of the plural makes no difference to the fact that it is correct. For numerous valid uses of "first loves" from (mostly) competent native writers, search Google Books. I'm sorry, but you are simply wrong in continuing to ...
