The Predicate

What’s a sentence?

A Subject + A Predicate = A Sentence

  • The subject tells us who or what.
  • The predicate tells us what about it.
  • Length does not determine what is and is not a sentence.
  • Regardless of how long or short a group of words is, it needs two parts to be a sentence: a subject and a predicate.
