K5S1 - 2 - Subjekte und Direkte Objekte

In grammar, the "subject" of a sentence is the noun that performs the action of that sentence. To find a subject, you can ask yourself the question "Who or what verbs?"

The "direct object" of a sentence is the noun that receives the action of the verb. To find a subject, you can ask yourself the question "Who or what gets verbed?"

Read each of the following sentences. For each sentence, determine whether the clothing item in the sentence is the subject of the sentence ("doing the verbing") or the direct object of the sentence ("getting verbed").

You can determine this based on the meaning of the sentence, and you can also use the knowledge that masculine nouns look different when they are direct objects than they do when they are subjects. However, you cannot rely on the order of the words like you can in English - since German word order is more flexible, direct objects can often begin sentences!
