When it comes to making a sentence of course a proper one we must ensure that we’re following the correct sentence formation structure by putting the subject, verb and an object at the right place where they should be. In case if we misplace these subjects verbs and objects our sentences may have a completely different meaning which can be awful for your letters, essays, notes, comments, messages or whatever you’re writing.
Below you’ll be going through the definitions of each and in order to understand them more, you’ll have a set of examples and an exercise too so that you can put all your sentences correct further.
Subject. Definition: The subject of a sentence is the noun, pronoun or noun phrase that goes before and administers the main verb. The subject is the part of the sentence that performs an action or which is associated with the action.
For example: … * “He” is the subject of the sentence, controlling the verb and the complement.
- He loves books.
- He goes for a walk.
- He speaks better.
A verb is a word or a combination of words that indicate an action or a state of being done or some condition. A verb is the part of a sentence that tells us what the subject performs or is performing or has performed. Verbs are the core of English sentences. let’s see some examples of how verbs are used differently in different sentences.
Go – Went – Gone
1st form of the verb: GO
2nd form: Went
3rd form: Gone
Examples of verbs:
- He goes to school.
- I go for a walk.
- He went home.
- She has gone back.
There are three types of verbs: action verbs, linking verbs, and helping verbs.
Action verbs are words that express action (do, play, walk, etc.) or possession (have, own, etc.).
- I play cricket.
- He does all the work.
A linking verb links the subject of a sentence to a noun or adjective that renames or describes the subject.
Examples of linking verbs:
- I became the president of my college.
- Nilsa is in love with Robert.
Helping verbs are used before action or linking verbs to show additional information. The main verb with its accompanying helping verb is called a verb phrase.
Examples of helping verbs:
- He is (helping verb) going to school.
- Ron is not listening.
The object of a sentence is the person or thing that receives the action of the verb in other words the action is being performed on something which can be a noun, name and place etc.
- He reads the book (object).
- He eats food (object).
- He speaks English (object).
