The very irregular verb is the only verb with more coherence than this one in the contemporary form. The Arnold/Britton  case of 2015 concerned provisions for service charges in 25 leases for the sale of modest vacation towers. Consistent with the normal natural meaning of the wording of the clause in question, the lessor had argued that the contract had required tenants to pay a fixed annual service amount that increased by 10% per year, whereas this meant that the service charges payable each year would exceed $1/2 million until the end of the tenancy agreements. That would be a disastrous economic consequence for tenants. However, the Supreme Court agreed with the owner and clarified the correct approach for the interpretation of the contract: Note: According to the Common Law, the agreement is a necessary element of a valid contract. Under the Single Code of Trade, paragraph 1-201 (3), the agreement is the good deal of the contracting parties, as they are explicitly presented by their language or implicitly by other circumstances (as transactions). In 2004, the NHS Commissioning Board entered into a funding agreement with a family physician`s office, whereby the Board`s financial assistance would be equal to the family doctor`s loan interest. In 2007, the parties entered into a new contract. The 2007 contract (the subject of the dispute) provided for a fixed amount to be paid to the Commission, as opposed to an amount related to the cost of credit. After the contract was concluded, the cost of the family doctor`s credit decreased significantly, but the Commission continued to pay the fixed contractual amount. Subsequently, when the board made a claim for reimbursement of amounts it considered unpaid, the Court of Appeal confirmed that, under the clear and literal meaning of the contract, the fixed amount must be paid and therefore there is no need to repay it.
The Court of Appeal confirmed: In English, the defective verbs usually show no agreement for the person or the number, they contain the modal verbs: can, can, can, must, must, should, should. In nomal sentences, adjectives do not match the name, although pronouns do.
