A group of words that makes complete sense is called a sentence. A complete sentence expresses a complete thought.
These are all complete sentences.
But, the following sentences are not complete:
Note: Sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a period, question mark or exclamation mark.
- The subject is what or who the sentence is about.
- The predicate is what is being said about the subject. In other words, it describes what is happening.
Here, these sentences make complete thoughts with subjects and predicates.
Here, Sandra is the subject. She is who the sentence is about.
Here, draws a picture is the predicate. That is what is happening in the sentence.
Remember, predicates always contain a verb.
