Compound Subject

Sometimes a subject may be more than one thing or person. They have more than one noun or pronoun and are called compound subjects.

For example:

Here, there are three main subjects who are Debra, Harry, and I. This is a compound subject.

  • Debra, Harry, and I watched the movie.
  • Yellow stickers, old photographs, and glitter covered Anne's diary.

Here, there are three things that covered Anne's diary; yellow stickers, old photographs, and glitter. This is also a compound subject.

Compound Predicate

Sometimes one subject may be doing more than one thing. There may be more than one verb and these are called compound predicates.

For example:

  • Betty walks along the ocean and admires the waves.

Betty is the one subject, but she is doing two things; walking and admiring. So, "walks along the ocean" and "admires the waves" is a compound predicate.

Similarly,

  • Mary sings and whistles to the song.

Here, Mary is one subject who is doing two things; singing and whistling. So, "sings and whistles to the song" is a compound predicate.

Summary
  • Sometimes a subject may be more than one thing or person. They have more than one noun or pronoun and are called compound subjects.
  • Sometimes one subject may be doing more than one thing, and thus have more than one verb. These are called compound predicates.
