Complete Subjects and Complete Predicates

This tutorial will help you to review and remember what we have learned about complete subjects and complete predicates.

Complete subject = These are all the words in the sentence that tell who or what the sentence is about.

          For example:  Our amazing teacher loves to teach grammar every day.

  • Often the complete subject appears at the beginning of a sentence.

Complete predicate = These words tell what the subject of the sentence is or is does.

          For example:  Our amazing teacher loves to teach grammar every day.

  • Often the complete predicate appears at the end of a sentence.
  • It tells what the subject is or what the subject is doing.
  • Once you have found the complete subject, the complete predicate is the rest of the sentence
