"ils sont d'accord" ou "ils sont d'accords"
Quel est votre avis sur cet accord?
No reason at all for accord to be plural, especially as its basic meaning is of unity.
Only when you are talking about more than one agreement would you use les accords, but never the way you have.
"Ils sont d'accord".
It's an invariable "locution verbale".
But Arrius is right, without the "d' ", we write "un accord", "des accords".
Not sure whether to make "d'accord" agree with the plural verb.
In fact, I'm writing to a couple so it's a real plural not just the polite form. (Not sure whether this would make a difference in any case.)
Comments greatly appreciated.
d'accord est invariable.
Nous sommes d'accord.
Elles sont d'accord.
OK - thanks very much indeed.
Separate names with a comma.
