Согласование сказуемого с именной группой, включающей слова "сколько", "столько", "много", "немало", "несколько"

This study considers predicate agreement with quantifier phrases that include the words neskolko, stolko, skolko, mnogo, nemalo. We analyze the evolution of  predicate agreement with neskolko, stolko, skolko, nemalo and mnogo and describe the modern standard of usage based on the data from the Russian National Corpus. The influence of grammatical properties of the numeral on the predicate choice as well as certain factors that favor  the non-typical plural predicate (such as predicate  type, animacy of the NP, syntactic  structure of the NP) are also considered.
