until money come

Is there correct the following phrase?

We can not discuss about money until they come.


  • Is it needed the negation in the second sentence?
  • Are / is the money plural or singular?

The word “money” is uncountable, ergo it can be neither plural nor singular.
Also, the verb “discuss” is transitive, therefore, the sentence must read “we can not discuss money until they come”.

  • So, “money come” or “money comes”? Or both?

Uncountable nouns take singular verbs, so it should be “money comes”.

In “Where does the money come from?”, “come” is an infinitive form, not an inflected form that needs to agree with “money”. The verb that agrees with “money” is “does”. Compare “Where will he be next week?” (not “Where will he is next week?”).

“That money come out of the bank.” is bad English, where “come” is used for “came”. (If from a published source then it is probably deliberately intended to signify working-class or dialect speech.)
