這是英文第三人稱的問題

"The letters Ann Landers receive cover every topic imaginable."

這句話中cover 是對應The letters 所以不用加S, 但是receive是對應Ann landers, 那是不是要加s或ed? 因為這是說"這些信被Ann Landers收到," 而Ann Landers是第三人稱啊......

    The letters Ann Landers receive cover every topic imaginable.The letters (that) Ann Landers receive 應改為The letters (that) Ann Landers received或 The letters (that) Ann Landers has received除非Ann Landers 是一群人或家族的代稱用receives較不妥,因為現在式通常代表習慣、真理、事實等,都不適用於句中的情況。

    正確應是

    The Letters Ann Landers received cover every topic imaginable.

    因為Ann Landers 已收到信,所以要用RECEIVED(過去)
