Subject and Predicate

Every sentence consist of two parts Subject and predicate

Subject – The part of the sentence which names the person or thing we speak about is called the Subject of the sentences.

Predicate – The part of the sentence that tells us something about the subject i.e the person or thing denoted by the subject is called a Predicate

Subject and Predicate Examples –




1) The girls are playing together.

2) The old man was walking slow.

3) The earth goes around the sun.

Let us divide these sentences into Subject and Predicate

SUBJECT  – The girls
PREDICATE – are playing together

SUBJECT  – The old man
PREDICATE – was walking slow

SUBJECT  – The earth
PREDICATE – goes around the sun

Note:- The Subject of a sentence usually come in the beginning, but occasionally it is put after the predicate.

For eg:-

  • Here comes the teacher.
  • Down fell the oranges.

Note:-  In Imperative or Command sentence the Subject is left out as

Come in (it is understood you come in)

Thank him (you thank him s implied)
