Kinds of Sentences


Normally, a sentence expresses a relationship, conveys a command, voices a question, or describes someone or something. It begins with a capital letter and ends with a period, question mark, or exclamation mark.


The basic parts of a sentence are the subject and the predicate. The subject is usually a noun - a word that names a person, place, or thing. The predicate (or verb) usually follows the subject and identifies an action or a state of being. See if you can identify the subject and the predicate in each of the following short sentences:



•The hawk soars.

•The widows weep.

•My daughter is a wrestler.

•The wrestlers are tired.


In each of these sentences, the subject is a noun: hawk, widows, daughter, and children. The verbs in the first two sentences – soars, weep – show action and answer the question, "What does the subject do?" The verbs in the last two sentences – is, are – are called linking verbs because they link the subject with a word that renames it (wrestler) or describes it (tired).
