English Grammar: The Parts of a Sentence
To make a proper sentence, you need a subject and a verb — all other components of the sentence are just icing on the cake! Here’s how to break down the parts of a sentence:
Verb: Expresses an action or state of being.
Subject: The person or thing being talked about. Also the person or thing performing or being the verb, so it must match up with the verb.
Complement: A word or group of words that completes the meaning of the subject–verb pair.
Types of complements: Direct and indirect object, subject complement, object complement.
