Active and passive verb tenses

Active and passive verb tenses


Parts of a sentence review

Parts of a sentence (Review)

  • Subject: a person, place or thing.

    HINT

    To identify the subject of a sentence, ask yourself "who or what is doing the action?"

  • Verb: an action word.

    HINT

    To identify the verb in a sentence, ask yourself "what is the action?" or "what is being done here?" In some sentences, though, the verb is a "state of being." The verb "to be" in all its forms is an example of this.

  • Direct Object:a person or thing receiving the action
