Subjects and Predicates: What We Need to Know
Subject: the person, place, thing, or idea that is being discussed or described in a sentence. Predicate: the part of a sentence or clause containing a verb and stating something about the subject. Subject-predicate Relationship: the relationship between the subject and predicate of a sentence, which can be a linking relationship (the subject 'is' the predicate) or an action relationship (the subject 'does' the predicate).
The subject of a sentence is the noun or pronoun that the sentence is about, while the predicate is the part of the sentence that contains the verb and describes the action of the subject. The predicate can also contain words that modify the verb, such as adverbs or adjectives. In some sentences, the subject can be implied, rather than stated, and the predicate can contain the subject and the verb.

What difference can you identify between a subject and a predicate? Answer in complete sentences.
Subject predicates are words or phrases that describe who or what performs the action of the verb. The subject is usually found before the verb in a sentence. A subject predicate can be a single word or a phrase.
Subject: This is the main person, place, thing, or idea that is being discussed in a sentence. Predicate: This is the part of a sentence that tells something about the subject. Sentence: This is a group of words that expresses a complete thought.
The predicate in a sentence is the part of the sentence that tells something about the subject. The predicate can be a verb, an adjective, or a noun, but it can never be a pronoun. The subject and predicate are always connected by a verb, even if there is an intervening phrase or clause.
