Last week I wrote a blog-post stating a sentence requires a subject and a predicate. However, this week I have learned a sentence must have a verb but the verb can also be a predicate.
The difference between a predicate and a verb is subtle, with a predicate relying on the use of a verb. In some sentences, a predicate and a verb can be the same word or, in the case of more complex sentences, you may use an additional verb to help describe a predicate. Knowing the difference between a predicate and a verb will help you formulate more complex sentences and identify common grammatical mistakes in your writing.
Whoa! Laughter! Do I have my work cut out for me. Yikes!
The more I learn what formulates a sentence the more I’m learning I need to take my time in studying and blogging about grammar. Thus, helping me to truly grasp the different parts of speech before I share information learned.
I don’t know about you but, it excites me to finally begin learning how to write and speak proper English.
