ink in water

grumble about verbs and plurals

In this document there's a quoted section with this plutral "Both set theory and category theory transcends the particularity of mathematical structures.", and it doesn't taste right to me, because it's saying that each set theory and category theory transcend. I think you'd say that "theories transcend" probably sounds more reasonable than "theories transcends". Saying "Terrence and Philip drinks fresh mango juice." sounds wrong to me for the same reason.
