BIG HINTS GRAMMAR

For the following sentences, if you are asked to identify the subject, select only the simple subject (no descriptive words, conjunctions, prepositional phrases, etc.).

If you are asked to select the verb, select the simple predicate (the verb plus any helping VERBS, but not descriptive words, conjunctions, or prepositional phrases).


"Patricia will always help with the project." (Simple predicate = will help)


IGNORE PREPOSITIONAL PHRASES WHEN LOOKING FOR SUBJECTS, DIRECT OBJECTS, INDIRECT OBJECTS, OR PREDICATE NOMINATIVES.


Remember that the simple subject might actually be compound:

"Bob and Tony ran the race." (Bob, Tony = simple subject)

Remember that the simple predicate might be compound:

"Bob ran the race and won the medal." (ran, won = simple predicate)
