In the phrase 'ils se sont donné le mot' why is donné not plural ?
Reading B2, Politics, History & Economics, Listening or Seeing B2
It isn't plural because the COD is le mot, and it comes after the participle. The reflexive pronoun se is only the COI (indirect object).
The 2nd link is to a Wikipedia article. The first link is to a recent answer from Céline, which I think is the best detailed commentary with examples on this topic that I have come across - it should be included/linked in relevant lessons.
