Grammar help

Postby Vemusa » 2013-09-25, 13:35

I am going to make a painting of Sigur Rós, and there is one lyric that I really like apart from one word.
The sentence is: "það besta sem guð hefur skapað er nýr dagur"
I wonder if it is grammatically correct to change it to this: "það besta sem Sigur Rós hefur skapað er nýr dagur"?
Cheers for your response!

I am not a native speaker, but this should be right. If you use "Sigur Rós" as one person (band) the verb stays the same (hefur). If you use it as "they" (because they are more than one) you have to change it to "hafa skapað".

You would use the singular here, so "hefur skapað" is correct.
