    Neither is correct, Bob is a bastard, and he and his family are getting nowhere near here !

    @wobble. Why do you have such prejudice against men born out of wedlock?

    Snoozy.....who said #2 was correct also.

  • CoonDawg

    Number 2 is the only one that is correct. Because of the "and" joining Bob and his family makes this plural, the verb needs to be consistent with the subject (which is plural because of that pesky "and"). The only way that #1 is correct would be to say "Bob's family IS coming here tonight" because this would change the subject to the singulary "bob's family."

  • GLTirebiter

    With that sort of awkward construction, consider re-ordering the clauses:

    "Bob is coming tonight, with his family."

    There is no clash of singular, plural and compound noun clauses; the main action ("Bob is coming") is stated first; and the detail "with his family" follows.
