The Structure of a Sentence (745 words)
Usually, however, the sentence has a subject as well as a predicate and both the subject and the predicate may have modifiers.
The most natural sentence structure is the simple sentence: it is the first kind which children learn to speak, and it remains by far the most common sentence in the spoken language of people of all ages.
A complex sentence is very different from a simple sentence or a compound sentence because it makes clear which ideas are most important.
Subject and Predicate (427 words)
To determine the subject of a sentence, first isolate the verb and then make a question by placing "who?" or "what?" before it -- the answer is the subject.
Imperative sentences (sentences that give a command or an order) differ from conventional sentences in that their subject, which is always "you," is understood rather than expressed.
Be careful with sentences that begin with "there" plus a form of the verb "to be." In such sentences, "there" is not the subject; it merely signals that the true subject will soon follow.
