The two fundamental parts of every English Sentence are the subject and the predicate. A simple sentence can also be described as a group of words expressing a complete thought. Subjects can be described as the component that performs the action described by the Predicate.
A simple sentence or independent clause must have a verb. A verb shows action or state of being. The subject tells who or what about the verb.Subject + verb = sentence
