Why dream come not dream comes?
I am confused with this usage. Dream is s singular verb and it should be 'comes' not 'come'.
But people use 'come' only. Please help me with the reason.
"It's a dream come true"
This does not mean "It's a dream that comes true".
It is a phrase. To "come true" means to become a reality or to materialise.
It would be a dream come true. (come is the infinitive)
It was a dream come true (come is in the past participle)
Come /came / come.
Another example is:
The good guy went bad / he is a good guy gone bad

"Come " is not a doing work or verb in this instance. Its a set of adjective phrase.Its a descriptive word for "dream" not a doing word for "dream". Neither the word "dream" here is positioned as a doer/actor. Hope this explanation enlightens your ambiguity.
