Sentence Structure

An English sentence must contain a subject and a predicate. It can stand alone as a grammatical unit or an independent clause.

Ex.- The old womanshopped for groceries.

(subject) (predicate)

Syntax part 1

  • Direct Object: Completes the predicate by indicating who or what receives the action expressed by the verb. Ex: Emma paint a portrait of Harriet.

  • Indirect Object: Noun or pronoun that indicates to whom or for whom an action is done. Ex: Olivia gives a ring to Viola.

  • Appositive: A noun or noun phrase that describes or equates with a nearby noun or pronoun. Ex: Darcy, a supremely proud aristocrat, at first snubs Elizabeth Bennet.

Kinds of sentences

Kinds of Sentences

  • Simple Sentence: Consists of a single independent clause. Ex: Jane rebels.

  • Compound Sentence: Contains more than one independent clause, with no subordinate clauses.

    Ex: Odysseus never gives up hope, and eventually he triumphs.

  • Complex Sentence: Not only has independent clause, but one or more subordinate clauses. Ex: When Romeo first sees Juliet, he falls instantly in love with her.
