A link links a name or adjective in the predicate to the subject. The forms of the verb `be` are the most common links. The binding verbs can be used in all three voltage times. If the subjects related to `or`, `nor` have different numbers, the verb must be plural and the plural subject should be placed next to the verb. For example, it should be noted that the article is used only once if both names refer to the same person. If one referred to different people, the article would be used before each noun and the verb would be plural. For example, if two subjects together express an idea, the verb will be in the singular.
