Every sentence consists of two parts, expressed or understood
Subject: The part which names the person or thing we speak about, is called subject
Predicate: What is said of the person or thing denoted by the Subject is called Predicate.
2. For Example:
|1||We||have done our duty.|
|2.||Birds||fly in the air|
|3.||A bad Workman||blames his tools|
|4.||The rich||are not always happy|
|5.||The early bird||catches the worm.|
The Subject does not always come at the beginning of the sentences:
- How badly you sing!
- Down dropped the breeze
- Across the path lay a frozen snake.
- Sweet are the uses of adversity.
|1||You||sing how badly|
|2.||The breeze||droped down|
|3.||A frozen snake||lay across the path|
|4.||The uses of adversity||Are sweet|
3. In Imperative Sentences the Subject is generally left out:
- Do this. (Here the Subject You is understood)
- Thank you. (Here the Subject I is understood)
