Sentences are the freight trains that carry your ideas to the reader. As a result, you should understand how these trains of thought are put together.
The Basic Parts of a Sentence
Sentences have two basic parts—the subject and the verb.
Subject 🟪 The subject usually tells who or what is doing something.
Sara rides her bike to Tanisha’s house.
Verb 🟪 The verb (also called the predicate) expresses action or links the subject to another part of the sentence.
Tanisha takes her own bike from the garage. (action verb)
The girls are eager for today’s adventure. (linking verb)
