What are two parts of a sentence?
Subjects and Predicates: The Basics
A sentence has two main parts: the subject and the predicate. The subject is who or what the sentence is about. It can be a noun (person, place, thing) or a pronoun (he, she, it). The predicate tells something about the subject and usually includes a verb.
the subject and predicate
Subject: The subject of a sentence is a noun or pronoun that tells who or what the sentence is about. It is usually the first noun or pronoun that appears in the sentence.
Predicate: The predicate is the part of the sentence that tells something about the subject. In other words, it is the verb or action that the subject is doing.
Subject-Verb Agreement: The subject and verb must agree in number. This means that if the subject is singular, the verb must also be singular; if the subject is plural, the verb must also be plural.
Did you know?
The subject of a sentence is the noun or pronoun that is doing or being something. The predicate of a sentence is the part of the sentence that says something about the subject. The predicate can be as short as a single verb, or it may be a phrase or clause that includes a verb and other modifiers or objects.
