Sentence Basics

Chapter Overview

A sentence is a basic building block of clear, effective language. To be a sentence, a group of words must have a subject and a predicate and express a complete thought.

In this chapter you will learn about sentences by studying the following concepts:

  • subjects and predicates (both simple and compound)
  • sentence fragments
  • action versus linking verbs
  • commands, questions, and here or there statements
  • nouns and pronouns
