Subjects and Predicates

June 20th, 2024 in Grammar by April Michelle Davis 0

Sentences are made up of a subject and a predicate. Both can be either simple or complete. The simple subject is the noun, and the complete subject is the noun, as well as all of the words associated with it. The simple predicate is the verb, and the complete predicate is the verb and all of the words associated with it.

Predicate – a grammatical division of a sentence; it is the part of the sentence comprising what is said about the subject.

Subject – a grammatical division of a sentence; it is a noun or pronoun about which the predicate is about.
