We prefer simple subjects when possible, using collective nouns or pronouns instead of subjects joined by conjunctions.
A complete subject is a simple subject and any modifiers of the simple subject. You should be able to identify the complete subject of a sentence easily since it normally precedes the verb.
Subordination is considered more emphatic than coordination.
The subordinate clause can act as a noun, adjective, or adverb.
(Thinking about a noun makes the noun an object of action — even if the action is abstract.) An indirect object answers “to/for whom/what? The indirect object receives no action but is frequently confused for a direct object.
A sentence can be rewritten to place the indirect object within a prepositional phrase.Simple remember that complements complete predicates. There are five complements in English sentence structures: A predicate noun or pronoun names the subject of a sentence.Most sentences with a predicate noun or pronoun use a conjugation of to be. Each sentence contains a subject and a predicate, expressed or implied.As we learn any language our sentences increase in complexity.Predicate nouns and pronouns are sometimes called predicate nominatives.Nominatives are words typically used as objects within a phrase.The first sentence features a split predicate, as demonstrated by rearranging the sentence.Knowing the sentence structures makes varying your sentence structures easier.There are simple compounds, coordination, and subordination.The simple compound sentences tend to use and to join basic independent clauses. Subordination reduces one of the clauses to a dependent clause.
