THE 5 PARTS OF A SENTENCE INCLUDE: SUBJECT, SIMPLE PREDICATE, DIRECT OBJECT, INDIRECT OBJECT, SUBJECT COMPLEMENT
INSTRUCTOR: MATT WEBER
WHAT WE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE SUBJECT
THE PREDICATE IS THE VERB AND OTHER WORDS THAT ARE ABOUT THE SUBJECT AND IS THE SIDE OF THE SENTENCE THAT SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT THE SUBJECT.
THE DIRECT OBJECT IS A NOUN OR PRONOUN
A DIRECT OBJECT IS A NOUN, OBJECT PRONOUN, OR INDEFINITE PRONOUN THAT RECEIVES THE ACTION OF THE ACTION VERB.
Transitive Action Verb: The hungry traveler gobbled his food.
Intransitive Action Verb: The hungry traveler gobbled noisily.
Passive Voice Action Verb: The food was gobbled noisily.
Linking Verb: The traveler was hungry.
THE NOUN OR PRONOUN THAT IS LOCATED BETWEEN THE ACTION VERB AND THE DIRECT OBJECT AND THAT IS INDIRECTLY AFFECTED BY THE ACTION
The subject complement is the noun, pronoun, or adjective that is linked into an equation with the subject by a linking verb.
A SUBJECT COMPLEMENT IS A NOUN, SUBJECT PRONOUN, INDEFINITE PRONOUN, OR ADJECTIVE THAT COMPLEMENTS THE SUBJECT
IT IS LINKED TO THE SUBJECT BY A LINKING VERB
