Subject and Predicate 

To form a complete sentence, two main parts must be present: a subject and a predicate.     

A subject is what or who the sentence is about while a predicate describes what the subject is or is doing.  For example consider the sentence:

                Ron went to the mall.

In the above sentence, "Ron" is the subject because the sentence is about Ron.  The rest of the sentence "went to the mall" is the predicate, because it describes what Ron did. The subject of a sentence is usually the main noun or pronoun while the predicate is the verb and its modifiers in the sentence.

There are two different classifications of subject and predicate.

1.       Simple vs. complete subject or predicate

2.       Compound (vs. singular) subject or predicate
